Sick of worms??? Do you get sick of chocolate? I don’t only eat worms. I am partial to a nice slug too. Not a fan of blackberries thank you but I do have my eye on some promising raspberries in the garden which I am thinking of adding to my other favourite, Toad in the Hole.
Worms are my big favourite though. I get through several hundred each night. Digging is VERY hard work and I don’t have a spade so I am always hungry!! But I do like a bit of fruit now and again and sometimes I’ll find some nice flower bulbs to munch on while I’m watching the owls at night lying on some nice short grass. We have a lovely human who keeps the grass short where we like to have a good scratch and dig to find our worms, she plants raspberries for us too and gives us lots of flower bulbs to munch on.
Why is the world round ? A planet is round because of gravity. A planet’s gravity pulls equally from all sides. Gravity pulls from the center to the edges like the spokes of a bicycle wheel. This makes the overall shape of a planet a sphere, which is a three-dimensional circle.
Big, small, but all round
The eight planets in our solar system differ in lots of ways. They are different sizes. They are different distances from the sun. Some are small and rocky, and others are big and gassy. But they’re all nice and round. Why is that? Why aren’t they shaped like cubes, pyramids, or discs?
Planets form when material in space starts to bump and clump together. After a while it has enough stuff to have a good amount of gravity. That’s the force that holds stuff together in space. When a forming planet is big enough, it starts to clear its path around the star it orbits. It uses its gravity to snag bits of space stuff.

What heights are diving boards at a proper swimming pool please? Hmmm well I don’t like getting my fur wet so swimming pools are not my favourite thing Finn. But I have finished my worm sandwich and have done a little research for you….
A diving platform or diving tower is a type of structure used for competitive diving. It consists of a vertical rigid “tower” with one or more horizontal platforms extending out over a deep pool of water. The height of the platforms 10 metres (33 ft), 7.5 metres (25 ft) and 5 metres (16 ft) – gives the diver enough time to perform the acrobatic movements of a particular dive. There are additional platforms set at 3 metres (9.8 ft) and 1 metre (3.3 ft). Most platforms are covered by some sort of matting or non-slip surface to prevent athletes from slipping. Hope that answers your question. Badgers are the best
Disturbing my worm eating activities young Finnster!! I was busy digging up the grass.
Hmmm how would I stop Tiggy jumping up? Why do you jump up and down? I think she gets too excited. Maybe you could read her a very boring book to put her to sleep?
How does a wildlife camera work? Well your camera has not got me yet. I’ve managed to avoid being captured by it but I am a particularly sneaky badger. The main advantage of a Wildlife camera, is that they can be placed in a remote location and set to record when there is motion. … Whenever there is movement, depending on the settings, the camera then records any action straight to the memory card.
How does sonar work? A sonar device sends pulses of sound waves down through the water. When these pulses hit objects like fish, vegetation or the bottom, they are reflected back to the surface. The sonar device measures how long it takes for the sound wave to travel down, hit an object and then bounce back up.
Does stop ever stop? My space stops at the end of my burrow but I like it cosy. Lots of people think that there is no end to space. However, we can only see a little bit of it. The universe is 13.8 billion years old, light from a galaxy more than 13.8 billion light-years away hasn’t had time to reach us yet, so we have no way of knowing such a galaxy exists. Wowsers that is a very difficult question so I am stumped and cannot be certain. I am certain that I LOVE worms and must be off to find myself some tea. There are some very tasty ones in the grass at your house all I have to do is avoid the sneaky camera and they will never know I have been!!!
Thank you for your questions, happy to help, all part of the nocturnal service from your favourite badger.
Dear Poppy and Finn, I am not as speedy as Giggle or Forefix but I will get back to you when I have had a proper think about your very interesting question. And had a cup of tea. Maybe a biscuit. Now ask your question, eat your breakfast and be kind to your mother…
