Ginger badger

Duration: 01:08

Gordon Buchanan visits a badger sett to see an animal with a difference - a reddish coloured badger. This isn't a different species - it's an ordinary badger. It's what is known as an erythristic individual - a sort of halfway stage from a normal colour and a fully albino badger with pink eyes.
