HONEYBADGER DOESN*T CARE!

Indeed. What it may lack in size, it more than makes up for it with the figurative size of it's balls.

Are there a lot of badgers in Denmark?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JohnJohnNL

In 1995 35.000 grævelinge lived in Denmark, which seems quite a bit. Until 2012, it was the «største landrovdyr» (largest predator) in Denmark.

What species replaced the badger as Denmark's "største landrovdyr" in 2012?

Does grævling ave anything to do with "at grave", to dig?

No matter how many times I get this one, I always think it's a silly sentence. Badgers aren't that big.

They are pretty big by Danish standards. Despite what the course is trying to tell you, bears and wolves are a rarity in Denmark. :)

Denmark is a small country. Its islands are not big enough to support breeding populations of bears, or wolves, or elephants. If you list the species of wild animals that Denmark has, badgers are near the top of the list.

Well this one is. Maybe a wizard cast "enlarge animal" on it?

Badgers are big animals? Really? You mean there is a breed of Danish super badger I have yet to come across? Should I be afraid? Should I offer them wine or beer? Are they secretly ninjas? Will it eat my husband? So many questions!

Why is this "et stort" and not "en stor"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JayBird0520

It's et stort because it's referencing 'dyr' rather than the badger.

Ah yes. Thank you for the reply.
