Badgers are short-legged omnivores in the family Mustelidae.
Badgers are a polyphyletic grouping and are not a natural taxonomic grouping: badgers are united by their squat bodies, adapted for fossorial activity.
All belong to the caniform suborder of carnivoran mammals.
Badgers have rather short, wide bodies, with short legs for digging. They have elongated, weasel-like heads with small ears.
Their tails vary in length depending on species; the stink badger has a very short tail, while the ferret-badger's tail can be 4651 cm (1820 in) long, depending on age.
They have black faces with distinctive white markings, grey bodies with a light-coloured stripe from head to tail, and dark legs with light-coloured underbellies.
They grow to around 90 cm (35 in) in length including tail.
The European badger is one of the largest; the American badger, the hog badger, and the honey badger are generally a little smaller and lighter.
Stink badgers are smaller still, and ferret-badgers are the smallest of all.
They weigh around 911 kg (2024 lb), while some Eurasian badgers weigh around 18 kg (40 lb).
