Honey Badger Attacks Zebra to Protect Young (Video)
When Her Baby Gets A Little Too Close to Zebras, This Honey Badger Mom Isn’t Afraid to Take Action
Animals have excellent maternal instincts – a mother is always ready to protect the most important thing in her life — her children.
This honey badger mother doesn’t care about the size of the zebra approaching her baby. When it’s time to protect her young, she’s ready.
Though the zebra was probably just curious about this baby honey badger, mom still intervened to keep her cub safe — and stood up to an animal that was way bigger than twice her size to do it.
The honey badger (Mellivora capensis), also known as the ratel is a species of mustelid native to Africa, Southwest Asia, and the Indian Subcontinent. Despite its name, the honey badger does not closely resemble other badger species; instead, it bears more anatomical similarities to weasels.
