Abstract

European Badger feces (n = 410) were collected at monthly intervals during 1978 and 1979 in two habitats in Western France (Deux-Sèvres). Feces were analysed to estimate the frequency of occurence and the relative bulk of identifiable undigested items. Significant statistical differences were observed between different seasons and habitats. Various types of feeding strategies are distinguished and discussed. Despite a definite seasonal preference for earthworms, the European Badger is shown to be a "generalist", feeding upon a wide range of food items.
