American badger - July Morning, Jackson Hole, Wyoming
After a fruitless night of hunting, a badger has discovered a fresh target: the burrow entrance of a Wyoming ground squirrel. Badgers will dig furiously to excavate underground prey and their own dens. They can quickly tunnel themselves out of sight  using powerful forelimbs and long claws. When attacked themselves—cougars and eagles will try —badgers fight back with ferocity.
This beautiful diorama is located in the Bernard Family Hall of North American Mammals.

I just bought the most beautiful box set-Natural Histories: Extraordinary Rare Book Selections from the American Museum of Natural History Library, edited by Tom Baione. It includes essays and plates from the library holdings, as well as 40 loose prints. 

I’m in love.
