Blane Klemek column: Sighting badgers is an unlikely occurrence

Email

"Semi-fossorial . . . hmm, interesting", I thought to myself as my college mammalogy professor introduced the term in class one day.

This is the term, I soon learned, that's used to characterize species of mammals that spend significant parts of their lives underground - the likes of which include, for example, pocket gophers, moles and one of my favorite critters, the American badger.
