It would be hard to find a more quarrelsome animal than the honey badger. It doesn’t start fights it can’t finish, and it makes an impressive foe. Also, the honey badger’s skin is tough and loose, allowing the animal to twist around and bite an opponent that has grabbed it by the back of its neck. Combine that with a massive skull, strong teeth, and that awful odor, and you have an animal nobody wants to mess with! FUCK YEAH!
Ratel - By Molly
The life span of a ratel ( or honey badger) is 25 years in the wild. 25 YEARS OF PURE TERROR.

[In South Africa] They have a saying about honey badgers: ‘When a honey badger moves into a village, it’s time to move the village.’
— Guy on the Internet Whose Brother Went to South Africa
"Africa is full of scary predators, but none is more intimidating than … the honey badger?"
FUCK YEAH, ITS THE HONEY BADGER!
Cummins alerted Australia to a cult following worldwide of the honey badger. As made famous by YouTube, the animal eats cobras, ferociously defends itself against lions and arrows bounce off its hide. It’s described as either the bravest or dumbest animal alive.
