Animal House Signs with Badgers

Back to Animals

Badgers are nocturnal creatures, meaning that they are most active at night and sleep during the day. They are strong animals with sharp claws that enable them to dig burrows and find food for them to eat underground. They also create their homes which are called setts, by digging tunnels and caves underground while using leaves and grass for bedding.

They are very adaptable when it comes to their habitat, but they do prefer to be in dry and open grasslands. Some even live in woods, hedgerows, sea cliffs, moorlands and quarries! They can be spotted in any country as they live all over the world.

Despite choosing to live underground, they do not hibernate but can become much less active in the winter, sleeping for a few days or perhaps a week.

Most badgers have black faces with distinctive white markings and light coloured underbellies. What is also very interesting is that they love to keep their sett clean. They create communal toilets made by digging shallow pits on the edge of their territory, and they don't bring their food into their sett either.

There are a few different badger painting designs available for our house signs, some featuring beautiful florals and some with incredible scenery.

We also couldn't finish our written piece without mentioning that badgers are becoming endangered and can be victims of animal cruelty to create brushes for paint, makeup and shaving brushes. So just a quick note to say that if you need one of these brushes, buy a synthetic one!

From start to finish, your sign will be in skilled hands.

We pride ourselves on the care and commitment taken for every sign we produce. Attention to detail is paid during each stage of the process; from laying out the sign details to hand-painting the design, right through to shipping. Our goal is to produce a beautiful sign that we can all be proud of.
