What do honey badgers eat?
They are well known for their abilities to kill snakes by grabbing it behind the head with it's jaws and kill it. Honey badgers can devour a snake in 15 minutes. Honey badgers have a great appetite for beehives, and many of them have been stung to death by trying to eat the hive. A bird, called the honeyguide, will lead the honey badger to bees' nests. When a honey badger breaks the beehive, the bird will take it's share. The honey badger is one of the fiercest hunters of the desert, it's prey includes earthworms, termites, scorpions, porcupines, hares, and large prey like tortoises, crocodiles , and snakes (pythons and venomous species). It's ferocious reputation extends to attacking animals much larger than itself. The honey badger will eat dangerous venomous snakes, often the puff adder. When bitten the honey badger will become severely swollen and paralyzed,and will not move several hours. After a period of time the honey badger will awaken and continue eating its meal or its journey. A honey badger will steal a snake's kill, eat it, then continue to hunt the snake. This ferocious nature of the badger has earned it its image as a formidable creature. Honey badgers will dig into burrows of small rodents and flush them out for a small meal. The honey badger's has large front claws, and its ability to dig into burrows is very effective and will dig until the rodent found. Other wildlife are aware of this and birds of prey and jackals are usually ready to steal any kills which manage get past the honey badger.

Honey is the honey badger's favorite treat, although they do not rely on honey, but the nutritious bee hive is a sought after delicacy. The honey guide bird, has a habit of le…ading honey badgers to the bees' nests, and eats the honey, larvae, and wax from bee hives.
HARDLY ANYTHING. They are ferocious and fearless - even big cats usually avoid tackling them. Until we invented firearms our ancestors could only kill them by whacking them re…ally hard on the head. Their hides are too tough for arrows and spears to pierce. Incidentally they don't eat honey, it is the bee pupae that attracts them to hives.
badgers eat little small mammals and mostley they dig for food and they eat honey because they are called a honey badger!
they eat honey oftn because they don't have the teeths to catch an animal

Yes. Being one of the fiercest hunters in the desert it will often consume many animals including snakes. It can eat a snake in under 15 minutes. If bitter it will lay paralyz…ed for a few hours before waking up and continuing along its way. Honey badger don't care.
Type your answer here... python
Honey badgers eat honey very slowly by using their tongue to clean all the honey out of the hive. Bees will atack them but the honey badger is immune to their stings.

No, but they eat honey!
You can eat anything you want. That doesn't mean it tastes good or is good for you...
Honey badgers are not likely to eat cats. This is something that is not in their diet, though they might eat them if they feel provoked by them at any point.
One main carnivore that the honey badger eats is thesnake.
Maybe, But rabbits are pretty rare in the African savannah.
