The talking head on the nature program said that honey badgers aren't true badgers but rather weasels. And if you look at their physiques and pigeon-toed gait, they do resemble wolverines. One of their favorite foods is poisonous snakes. They often recover from snake bites that would kill a human in short order. One recovered from 300 bee stings after it raided a hive. They're smart as hell and fearless too, but oh so dirty.

E.g., one got into a scrape with a lion, zipped between the lion's front legs, and bit him in the testicles. Man, that is so low-down and unfair. Another one did the same thing to a black rhino who was minding his own business browsing at an animal rehab farm.

I don't believe I like 'em.
