Badger - Surrey, UK - Their lower jaws are articulated to the upper by means of transverse condyles firmly locked into long cavities of the skull, so dislocation of the jaw is all but impossible. This enables the badgers to maintain their hold with the utmost tenacity, but limits jaw movement to hinging open and shut, or sliding from side to side.
The badger is Wisconsin's state animal, a ferocious fighter with 4" long claws. Still, residents respect and admire them, and keep their distance! The badger is the animal that dachshunds were bred to hunt for. 'Dachs' as in badger, and 'hund' as in hound.
Jeremy Paul, hornets made a nest in the ground in my front yard and as I wondered how to deal with that, a badger showed up at midnight and dug up and ate the hornet's nest. It took him two nights but he got every last one. I love nature!
