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.

Many things:

  • Food (yum)
  • Fur (very waterproof fur)
  • Rodent Exterminators (badgers eat many rodents)
  • Soil Aerators (badgers' burrows aerate the soil when dug and collapsed)

Leopards and lions are predators that feed upon honey badgers. The mammals in question (Mellivora spp) also can face losing feeding chain and food web battles with African rock pythons. They may die from the stings inflicted by swarming honey bees (Apis spp) even though it will be the leopard and the lion, along with some villagers, that eat fresh honey badger flesh, whose carcasses may be consumed by vultures and other scavenging raptors.
