There are two badgers living in the tree outside my window at work.

What's the first thing that comes to your mind?

Also

What should I name them?

You've got a tree growing on your window ledge?

Badgers don't normally climb trees. Are they trying to spy on you?

Watch out they don't bite you and give you rabies.

They were the first things that I thought of. Helpful?

Yes

The tree splits in two about 5 feet up. They run up the tree and sit there. Not sure if they live there, but they've been hanging out there for a few days.

I work in an industrial park which is single story. The outskirts of Cincinnati are dense wooded areas. I get deer in my backyard not far from here, and raccoons and other small woodsy creatures. Found a snake and a frog mowing my lawn last night.

Hey, if you can't afford a gardener then I suppose a snake and a frog would be pretty cheap. How do they push the mower?

I've never heard of a badger in a tree before.

Are badgers the same thing over there as over here?

Maybe it's not a badger... I'm going to do a web search thingy and see what I dig up.

Look for the badger toilet.
They usually poo in the same toilet, usually a hole dug not too close to the set. Examine the poo and you can work out what it's been eating, lots of strawberry seeds for example.

Maybe it's a groundhog. But it's climbing the tree

That'd be a treehog then.

Probably wasn't a snake, either, just a piece of discarded rope.

Groundhogs will often climb trees, although I've only seen them do it to try to avoid danger. I wonder if they are eating leaf sprouts?

Japher

No. It was a snake. I didn't chop it up... then it flew away.

Be a red blooded American and start shooting all these creatures of nature. Venom would.

I've seen groundhogs climb trees twice, both times they just seemed to crawl up there to have a look around.

Those are groundhogs, huh? We have something called Nutria here...look like a beaver humped a rat...nasty looking little fuckers. We also have a lot of possum, raccoons, etc. Oregon is like a zoo.

hmm better hope it's not a honey badger. I knew they were tough but...from wiki...

"a honey badger named Kleinman was documented stealing a meal out of a puff adder's mouth and casually eating the meal in front of the hissing snake. After finishing the meal, Kleinman began also to hunt the puff adder, the species being one of the honey badger's preferred venomous snakes. He managed to kill the snake and began eating it, but then collapsed on the dead snake as he had been bitten during the struggle. After about two hours he surprisingly awoke. Once his paralysis had subsided, the honey badger continued with his meal and then resumed his journey."

Clearly nothing tougher than a German honey badger...

That's why I asked if there were any Mushrooms around, and I figured where the Snake comment came from too.
