On a drive close to Lukimbi Safari Lodge in the South of Kruger, Cecil Kagan was amazed to come across a three-way honey badger brawl.
It’s an extraordinary sighting as one would almost never get to see three honey badgers together at one time, let alone see them all involved in a great battle.
It’s not certain as to why these creatures began fighting in the first place but they all seem to be pretty upset. Honey Badgers are known for being fearless and they have a reputation for being aggressive. You can hear their “snorts” as they dive into one another, each trying to fight off its opponent by biting and scratching.
Even lions have dived in and tried to take on honey badgers yet these versatile beings seem to survive, maybe due to their incredible strong will and tenacious attitude.
At one stage they took off running like wildfire but soon stopped to continue their dispute again. Lastly, one of the honey badgers managed to roll itself up like a ball and make a quick getaway whilst the other two looked on in surprise.
Their teeth are incredibly powerful and they can chomp down with enough force to break a tortoise shell so luckily this sighting didn’t end with any broken bones or missing body part....
