American Badger (Taxidea taxus)

When I visited Yellowstone National Park in the USA, one of the animals that I was lucky to be able to watch and photograph was this American Badger (Taxidea taxus). Although mainly nocturnal, these lovely creatures can be active at any time of the day. This individual was one of a family group that were hanging out near their burrow and we were able to watch them for quite some time!
