Paleis het Loo.

A lot of animals live in this area. The badger population is very large in this area because national park De Hoge Veluwe is close by. The badgers sleep in wintertime, have cubs in spring, are very active in summertime and build nests in autumn.

But these badgers are not your run-of-the-mill badgers, they live on royal ground after all. So, are these royal badgers the same as normal badgers?

I investigated these royal badgers through knowledge of the foresters, spoke to badger lovers, badger haters and of course employees of Paleis het Loo. Drawings and stories tell children that visit Paleis het Loo about the special royal badgers.
