Hugh’s Wild West and Secret World’s badger cubs

Secret World’s badger cubs get starring role on BBC 2

Meet Bumblebee and Gnat, two badger cubs we looked after last year. Gnat came to Secret World last May, weighing just over 500g, a quarter of the size he should have been. Although small for his age, he soon became friends with another badger cub Bumblebee and they had many hours of rough and tumble fun together, Gnat holding his own against his larger friend! Both were joined by another two cubs and successfully released as a family unit last last summer.
See them on Hugh’s Wild West (aired at 6pm Saturday on BBC2) with River Cottage’s Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall. 

Surprise Baby Bat Born at Secret World

Staff at Secret World Wildlife Rescue in East Huntspill were surprised when one of the bats in their care gave birth.

The pipistrelle bat has been in the care of Secret World since December and was brought in having been disturbed from hibernation and found to be severely underweight – too underweight to be released immediately.

While the bat was recovering, staff were surprised by how many mealworms she was eating – double the amount for a bat her size and sex.
