  1. Hello Von
    Those facts about Badgers and Wild boars are awesome. I never knew that Badgers dig faster than a human with a shovel. Keep up the good blogging.

  2. Hi Von!

    Wow, I had no idea that badgers could survive without food for three months at a time or that they can dig faster than humans with a shovel. Those are some pretty cool facts! I now like badgers even more than I did before.

    Thanks for including a link to the 'Facts About Badgers' site. That is really useful. I will plan to learn more about them later in the week-end. I am sure that Aronui will also want to learn about them. He's fascinated by animals and will really like the cute black and white stripes on the badger's face, I'm sure!

    Thanks for teaching us something new, Von. Awesome work :)

    Rachel (and Aronui)
