Kind of old news, but who cares eh?
In a 2002 National Geographic documentary titled "Snake killers: Honey badgers of the Kalahari" a honey badger named Kleinman is documented while stealing a snake's meal out of its mouth and casually eating it right there in front of the snake while the snake is hissing the whole time. And then Kleinman goes on to hunt the snake too, which is a puff adder; one of the honey badger's preferred venomous snakes. He manages to kill the snake and starts eating it, but it turns out that he was bitten by the snake during the struggle. Kleinman collapses right beside the dead snake... But after about 2 hours, surprisingly he gets up again. Once his paralysis has subsided, the honey badger continues with his meal and resumes his journey
I love it when kids get their hands on wikipedia.
That has been on there for a long time. It's true... please.
releasing 1 metre long killer badgers into an area would be an effective way to sow panic among a populace.
