If you could take a glimpse into the underground life in a badger's sett in February, you would witness the females, or sows, giving birth to their young known as 'cubs'.

The cubs are about 12cm long and blind. They're grey in colour, with a slightly darker grey area on each side of their faces, where their familiar black eye stripes will appear later.

Although the badger gestation period is only eight weeks, this is preceded by what is called delayed implantation. This can stretch the development period by an extra ten months. By St. Valentines Day, female badgers will be in the mood for love again, and looking for a mate.
