Tell me about these little critters. I've been a Spring Hill Badger for five years now, but have never known anything about the animal. Basically all I know about them is that they're rather ferocious (sp?) when provoked, are carnivores, and are black with white stripes (making our mascot look like a skunk!) I've also heard that dachsunds' long, short build was bred to give them access to badgers' dens.
