Greater Hog Badger

We just learned about the Honey Badger.

Another type of badger is the Greater Hog Badger, also called arctonyx collaris.

This type of badger lives in Southeast Asia, and grows to be about 100 centimeters long and weighs about 10 kilograms.
Greater Hog Badgers have mostly brown fur, and a white face with black stripes.

You just have to look at their pig like nose to figure out why they are called the hog badger!
They use their big claws and this big hog nose to help them dig into the dirt and find worms to eat.
