4 m deep (n = 3 measurements along the path of the American badger, mean = 0.
The American badger occasionally stopped, lifted its head above the tire-rut, and scanned side-to-side for ca.
On 4 August at 1518 h, the American badger stopped and scanned to the north.
The North American badger
(Taxidea taxus) is a medium-sized, fossorial carnivore associated with prairies, open grasslands, old fields, and other treeless habitats in the western and north-central United States (Long and Killingley, 1983; Messick, 1987).
A few scattered records have indicated possible eastward expansion of the American badger in the ozark region of northern Arkansas.
A fur buyer also reported an American badger from Newton County in 1977 (Sealander, 1990).
The American badger had been hit next to the drainage ditch, which had high banks, sandy loam soil, and no tall vegetation.
To determine mean distance traveled daily, locations that were [greater than or equal to] 4 and [less than or equal to] 24 h apart were used to determine daily movements within ArcView allowing us to calculate mean distance traveled daily (m) for each American badger.
Lindzey (1978) also reported use of burrows by more than one American badger and speculated that they preferred various characteristics of dens for repeated use by multiple individuals.
The coyote was the species most frequently detected by remotely triggered cameras and cameras also produced detections of rarer species, including the American badger and both species of skunks.
Four species were detected frequently enough to estimate rates of use of habitat by study area: coyote, bobcat, American badger, and gray fox.
Conservancy officials said the land provides a wildlife corridor so mountain lions, bobcats, American badgers
, gray foxes, mule deer and long-tailed weasels can thrive in the Santa Monica Mountains.
