Badgers are relatively easy to recognize by their characteristic hair pattern. Badgers have a black and white head. From the mouth-corners, the black strips go straight upwards at first and then backwards on both sides of the muzzle. These strips widen over the eyes and the white bordered ears as far as into the neck where they become lighter and run into the silvery gray of the upper side and the flanks.
Badgers are easy to identify by their characteristic coat patterns. Badgers have a black and white drawn head. From the corners of its mouth, the black stripes first run straight up and on both sides of the snout to the back. These stripes widen above the eyes and the white-rimmed ears to the neck, where they are brighter and extend into the silvery gray of the top and the flanks.
In addition, badgers can be identified by the trunk-like snout and rich grave paws. The forefeet also have long down curved claws.
The confusion with other species is hardy given.
