Kel's Fun Facts: Honey Badgers

Honey Badgers are closely related to weasels and not closely related to other badgers.

Honey Badgers are also known as Ratel, which is an Afrikaans word for honeycomb.

The Honey Badger has a gestation period of approximately six months, usually births 2 cubs, who are born blind.

Honey Badgers are mostly solitary creatures and little is known about their life expectancy and mating habits in the wild.

The Honey Badger can use tools!

They have very few natural predators due to their tough skin and aggressive nature. They are tireless in battle and can beat much larger animals by fighting until the other animal gets tired and quits.

They are mostly carnivores, but will also eat berries, roots, and bulbs.

Honey Badgers can eat poisonous animals like Cobras.

The Honey Badger will eat all parts of their prey, including hair, feather, and bone.

Honey Badger doesn't give a shit.
