The honey badger is an omnivore that lives in sub-Saharan Africa, Saudi Arabia, Iran and western Asia. They usually eat honey, insects, reptiles, birds, mammals, roots, seeds and fruits. They can adapt to many environments, from warm rainforests to cool mountains. Honey badger possesses thick skin, strong claws, sharp teeth and has good poison resistance.
Honey badgers have a stubborn, aggressive nature, despite their very modest size. Honey badgers are not “bored” of any animal, even lions. A video has captured two honey badgers “fighting” with a herd of seven lions, causing them to retreat.
The video, taken by a tourist in Zambia, can be seen chasing two honey badgers down the ramp. But then, to the surprise of the lions, the two honey badgers suddenly turned to attack the predators. While the honey badger was climbing up the slope, the lioness lunged at one of the two small creatures.
However, with a tight formation, the 2 honey badgers not only quickly escaped, but also threatened the lions. After that, the honey badger pair continued to work together to repel the predators.
