The Kid Should See This

Honey Badger Houdini

From the BBC, these are Honey Badgers: Masters of Mayhem, and evidently they’re rather astonishing problem solving Houdinis, too. Wildlife conservationist Brian Jones explains as clever Stoffel works diligently to escape any space he’s kept in at the Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre in South Africa. 

From the San Diego Zoo

The honey badger is part of the weasel family, related to skunks, otters, ferrets, and other badgers. Its proper name is ratel, but it gets the common name honey badger from what seems to be its favorite food: honey. Yet what the animal is actually looking to eat are the bee larvae found in the honey!

Honey badgers are native to areas of Africa and Asia, from southern Morocco to Africa’s southern tip, and western Asia’s Caspian Sea, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Nepal, and western India. They live mainly in dry areas but are also found in forests and grasslands. Honey badgers are good swimmers and can climb trees.

They can also make mudballs, climb rakes, and open gates.
