A tail of two Badgers

Let me tell you a story. This evening two Badgers arrived together and combined their efforts as a team.

They are very obviously of different colours, although the similarity is also obvious and they very likely share similar backgrounds. The one in the slightly more formal looking colours, we call black jacket, and he is slightly larger than the one with a yellowish hue.

They did spend some time at the same table and seemed to be able to share quite amicably, although the larger one finished his meal first and went to help the smaller one out.

Because he couldn't get his own way he went behind the smaller one and tried to push him out of the way, but he didn't manage it and Brush-tail held his ground. I hope that they stay friends, but there are some tensions in the relationship.
