Honey badgers are known to be the most fearless animal in Africa. Today it was once again proved why.
We were driving down the road in the Sabi Sands Game reserve when we came across a honey badger attempting to drag a massive four-metre python through the grass.
Fortunately, the python was so big that the honey badger was unable to find suitable cover to hide the kill, which meant that we were able to whiteness the incredible tenacity of this small predator dragging a kill five times its own size. This equates to a single Male lion killing an animal as big a black rhino bull!
