Safari LTD | Wild Safari Wildlife ~ Honey Badger
The Honey Badger, also known as the Ratel, is a large member of the weasel family known for its tenacity. Despite not being very big by African predator standards, the Honey Badger has very few natural predators, as it defends itself fiercely and fearlessly if provoked.
The Honey Badger has a well-earned reputation for being one of the fiercest and most tenacious creatures alive. They are known to hold their own against much larger animals, including Cape Buffaloes and Lions.
Honey Badgers are named for one of their favorite foods, honey, though they are far from picky eaters and will eat just about anything that they are able to. They get honey directly from beehives, and are able to withstand bee stings due to their skin. This skin is both incredibly thick, which makes it difficult to penetrate, and very loose, giving the animal flexibility even if its skin is grabbed by a would-be predator.
