a courageous fighting carnivorous mammal (Mellivora capensis) of Africa and Asia, willing to attack cobras, cattle and even bison, having short legs and a thick coat that is dark below and whitish above, called a honey badger. Honey badgers are extremely difficult to kill. The skin is unusually tough and is attached loosely to the body, making it hard for other animals to grasp it. Animal bites, bee stings or porcupine quills usually do not penetrate the honey badger's tough hide. As an added deterrent to predators, the anal glands of honey badgers can emit a foul smelling liquid.

When a bird called the Honey Guide finds a beehive it gives a series of characteristic calls to guide the Honey Badger (the Ratel) to it. The Honey Badger then uses its strong legs, claws and teeth to tear open the hive where both animals feed on the contents.

Honey badgers live in underground burrows that they dig with their strong legs and claws. They den in groups but often hunt alone or in pairs. After mating, the female experiences delayed implantation, which means the fertilized eggs do not start developing for several months..Microsoft® Encarta® Encyclopedia 99. © 1993-1998 Microsoft Corporation.
