badger
Explanation:
غـُرَيـْر
if you mean this, it's the name of an animal "Badger".
here's a picture of it
http://encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com/badger (animal)

in معجم if you look up the word under غر you'll get several meanings for غـِـرّ: inexperienced, young, etc.
if you're looking for غـَرّ , it's the edge of the sword; and غَرَّ is to lure, deceive, etc..
as for غَرير it means both: inexperienced and/or conceited, arrogant, etc.

to look it up in lexicons, there are several ways, most common to search under first and second letters for the root word (mostly a 3-letter word), under the first letter \"Gh\" (غ) for the root \"Gharar - Ghrr\" (غرر), Chapter GH, section R:

http://www.alburaq.net/mukhtar/root.cfm (here, you need to search for Ghrr - غرر)

or, under the last letter and first, such as in:
Qamoos Moheet القاموس المحيط
or
Qamoos Waseet القاموس الوسيط
