Three Honey Badgers In Epic Brawl In Kruger National Park

Honey badgers are known for their aggression and fearless nature.

With short, thick legs and muscular shoulders, their appearance is brutish, and they definitely live up to their reputation.

Whilst on a game drive in the south of Kruger National Park, Cecil Kagan came across three honey badgers going teeth and claw at each other in the middle of the road.

‘It’s an extraordinary sighting as one would almost never get to see three honey badgers together at one time, let alone see them all involved in a great battle,’ he told Kruger Sightings.

The reason for their fight was unknown, but fortunately their were no fatal wounds at the end. Somewhat surprising given the power behind a badger bite.
