    the noun meles does mean 'badger' - the second 'meles' would probably be added as some sort of animal classification or to show that it was 3rd declension by having the genitive 'meles'.

    joking apart
    Meles meles
    The Latin name for a badger is Meles meles (in the Mustelidae family - all members of a group of animals called the Carnivora). Although this would suggest that the badger is a carnivore, it is an omnivore (meaning that it eats both meat and plants).

    Species are given Latin names so that experts can put different animal species into related groups.


    hope that helps
