Honey Badger Escape Artist

Programme website: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0418x7x Honey badgers escape from their enclosure using anything from mud balls to rakes.

 

Animals are often much smarter than we give them credit for, and watching them prove this is always fun. But Stoffel is ridiculously intelligent and  has shown coordination skills matching those of primates.

 

Stoffel is a honey badger that lives at the Moholoholo Rehab Center in South Africa. He is under the care of Brian Jones, a wildlife conservationist, but Stoffel is not too thrilled with the idea of being in an enclosed space. You see, Stoffel is the kind of honey badger that marches to the beat of his own drum. He lives life the way he sees fit and there’s no holding him back. 

 

Make sure you watch the whole video as Stoffel ramps up his level of craftiness.

Honey badgers are intelligent animals and are one of a few species known to be capable of using tools.


They are also known for their strength, ferocity and toughness, being known for attacking even repelling much larger predators.


The clip below shows a honey badger repelling a lioness:
