Speaking as a former biologist, I have some concerns regarding this custard cream diet that has been thrust upon them. I wouldn’t want such young badgers to become too accustomed to this particular biscuit because, as you may well know, in the wild badgers forage for a wide variety of biscuits – not just custard creams. In fact, in the southern UK, studies show a preference for digestive biscuits; as you move north into Scotland, badgers check under rocks and logs for shortbread. In conclusion, baby badgers should be fed a variety of biscuity treats – some of them hidden, necessitating digging and scrounging – so that they will be better prepared for the harsh realities of the British landscape.
