"I think there is no better time to write about one of the most vicious, brutal, and throat-crushingly hardcore mammals to ever punch a lion unconscious by swinging a couple King Cobras around like a pair of serpentine nunchucks – the African Honey Badger (also known as the Ratel)"

Google Honey Badger for more reasons the honey badger dominates. Because it does.


It even had a "heavily-armored Infantry Fighting Vehicle" named after it.

GO SNAKES BADGERS GO.

:P (No, I didn't mean to post with David ;) Whoops)

Huffle - Puffs ?

Sounds like puff the magic dragon or some serious deplorable cold.

"That's right, folks, this thing has been documented as killing male lions"

"That's just how Ratel operates.  He's been listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as "The World's Most Fearless Creature" every year since 2002, with no end in sight.  A relative of the Wolverine, the Honey Badger has no natural predators. This is kind of impressive, since three-foot-long creatures generally don't last long in environments featuring leopards, lions, cheetahs, black mamba snakes, and other savannah beasts, but there you have it.  It helps that this thing doesn't screw around when it gets pissed off – the Sir Didimus of wildlife is known to go after anything, anytime, anywhere, and has been known to attack buffalo, humans, wildebeest, jackals, monitor lizards, wild boars, and even lions and cheetahs.  If the creature is too huge for the Badger to straight-up eviscerate with its inch-and-a-half long claws or its razor-sharp teeth, the Ratel still knows how to go for the weak spot"



Explains why this lion is a little hesitant to face off with a pissed-off Ratel.
nobody seems to care
the feeling isn't there
like it was all a bad dream
now we're looking everywhere

"In the span of about three minutes this ferocious furry psycho climbs up into a tree to battle a six-foot cobra thirteen feet above the ground, somehow catches and eats a bird, chases off a leopard, and digs some sweet holes, but by far the most incredible aspect of the clip is when the Honey Badger takes on a super-deadly African Puff Adder.  Now, the Puff Adder is one of the most murder-tastic snakes on the entire continent.  One of these vipers possesses enough venom to kill 4 or 5 men, and they are so violent, toxic, and aggressive that they routinely account for more human fatalities than any other African snake.  But the Honey Badger doesn't care- he comes across a puff adder that is eating a rat, and his first instinct is to run up, grab the rat out of the snake's mouth, carry it a few feet away, and then eat the rat right in front of the snake just to show the adder who's boss. After eating the stolen meal, the Badger than decides, "Screw it, now I'm going to eat this snake too." The adder and the Ratel fight, and the Honey Badger kills the viper, but not before being bitten in the face and pumped full of enough venom to kill a creature three times its size. The Badger succumbs to the poison, falls unconscious, but then – amazingly – somehow comes back to life and continues devouring the already-half-eaten snake. Are you kidding me?"

(This is a recount of a video of the honey badger in action)

Clearly David has always been a secret Hufflepuff. What with his friendly, do-gooder attitude and all.
Confront them with annihilation, and they will then survive; plunge them into a deadly situation, and they will then live. When people fall into danger, they are then able to strive for victory.

Personally, all I see in that picture is the lion's complete lack of common sense in tangling with the infamous honey badger.  That lion is so dead.   If you don't believe me, just look at the photographic evidence.

The Honey Badger is the Chuck Norris of the Animal Kingdom.
