BBD -
'Meline' was new to me as well, although Wiktionary at least acknowledges it, for whatever that's worth. The Eurasian badger, a member of the Mustelidae family, is Meles meles.

I don’t mean the weasel family,
but the badger particularly.
“meline” is derived, not just by me,
from the Latin word maelês, you see,
and it’s cited in the OED.
