Look what I met outside ours famhouse in Tuscany: a badger.
This cute badger was intent to eat the snails that on the evening after the rain had come out to graze the grass. Since it was dark I have not seen immediately, but I heard the noise of the shells of snails that broke, when I started to look for where the noise was coming from, I saw a shadow a little bigger than a cat. When I lit the torch I realized it was a nice badge for nothing frightened by my presence. Quite calmly I came into the house to get my camera and take the picture you can see.
Since our Tuscan farmhouse is located on a reserve is not difficult to see foxes, deer, wild boars, hares, squirrels, porcupines, pheasants, hawks, herons, and the badger as you can see from the photo.
