American badgers are members of the weasel family, and their babies are called cubs. They’re carnivores and when hungry, they love to snack on rodents like mice and voles. They’re nocturnal, which means they’re awake at night, and they have long snouts and sharp claws. They call the grassland home where the soil is loose and great for digging their burrows.
