“It’s been a grounding tool through my biggest challenges and has also been where I’ve experienced some of my favourite memories.” Meanwhile, the Honey Badger has kept himself busy by creating the Rogue Gentleman’s Club—a project that aims to help men find “passion and purpose” through outdoor activities while retreating into the outback. According to WHO, Alexandra is a “Sydney socialite” who met Cummins during a trip to the Kimberley region in Western Australia in 2020. At the time, Nick featured in a picture Alex posted from the trip in April.

In some parts of the desert country, as already observed,
grow species of pines, with edible cones,—or
rather edible seeds which the cones contain. These
seeds resemble nuts, and are about the size of the common
filberts. Besides the yampah and kamas, there are several
339other edible roots found in the Digger country. Among
others may be mentioned a species of thistle (cirsium virginiarum),—the
root of which grows to the size of an
ordinary carrot, and is almost as well flavored.

His house is now finished; and, with the exception of
the mud floor, is all of itá palm,—beams, cross-timbers,
laths, ropes, and mats. The ropes he has obtained by
stripping off the epidermis of the full-grown leaflets,
and then twisting it into cordage of any thickness required. The
mats he has made from the same material,—and well
does he, or rather his wife—for this is usually the work
of the females—know how to plait and weave them. When the Guaraon wishes to build himself a habitation,
he does not begin by digging a foundation in the

The guanaco is among the shyest of quadrupeds; and
its capture would be difficult to any one unacquainted
with its habits. But these betray them to the skilled
Patagonian hunter,—who is well acquainted with every
fact in the natural history of the animal. They are not worn merely for the sake of
keeping the legs warm, but also as a protection against
the thorny shrubs which in Patagonia, as in all desert
lands, are exceedingly abundant. This soleless boot covers the leg all round from below
the knee, passing over the top of the foot like a gaiter;
it extends also around the heel, and a little under it,
but not so far as the instep, thus leaving the greater
part of the sole bare, and the toes peeping out in front! They are, in reality, nothing more or less than gaiters,
but gaiters of guanaco-skin, with the hair turned outward,
and worn, not over a pair of boots or shoes, as
gaiters usually are, but upon the naked shanks.


A honey badger was suspected to have damaged up the shells of tent tortoises within the Nama Karoo. It is a talented digger, in a position to dig tunnels into the onerous ground in 10 minutes. These burrows often have just one entry, are often only one–Three m (3.3–9.8 ft) long with a nesting chamber that’s not linked with any bedding.The honey badger is infamous for its energy, ferocity, and toughness. It is thought to savagely and fearlessly assault nearly every other species when escape is unimaginable, reportedly even repelling a lot bigger predators comparable to lion and hyena.

Meet The Honey Badger: Introduction

Many people dismissed this account, and other anecdotes like it, as myths. That changed in the 1980s, thanks to Kenyan birder Hussein Isack and German zoologist Heinz Ulrich Reyer. Over three years, they followed the Boran people of northern Kenya as they, in turn, followed honeyguides. In my opinion, it boils down to whether the wolverine could get through the honey badger’s defenses to kill him and whether the honey badger even has the tools to kill a wolverine. While the wolverines weaponry is formidable, it does not approach that of lions, leopards or hyaenas. Below is a link to a video of a leopard battling to kill a honey badger.

Only near the banks of the
rivers and some of the fresh-water lakes, is there any
evidence of a fertile soil; and even in these situations
the timber is usually scarce and stunted. Of course,
there are tracts that are exceptional,—oases, as they
are geographically styled. Of this character is the
country of the Mormons on the Jordan, their settlements
on the Utah and Bear Rivers, in Tuilla and Ogden
valleys, and elsewhere at more remote points. There
are also isolated tracts on the banks of the smaller
streams and the shores of lakes not yet “located” by
the colonist; and only frequented by the original dwellers
of the desert, the red aborigines. In these oases
are usually found cottonwood-trees, of several distinct
species,—one or other of which is the characteristic
vegetation on nearly every stream from the Mississippi
to the mountains of California. On the western selvage of this thistle tract lies the
grass-covered section of the Pampas.

Humans are the main predator for honey badgers, but most interactions happen when a badger attacks a farm looking for food. These usually end with the human killing the badgers, but not without a significant fight. Their keen nose allows them to detect food underground, and their eyes allow them to spot prey aboveground. Their hunting method is to simply chase their aboveground food and grab it with their claws or jaws. Once they get a hold, they will swiftly kill it with a few shredding claw swipes or a bite to the neck.

In this episode, the Kratt brothers are in Africa, searching for the continent’s “roughest, toughest predator”, when Koki and Aviva find out that Chef Gourmand has invited and will be serving a “mystery animal” to Zach Varmitech. The Kratt brothers then get moving to find out what the animal is and to stop Gourmand. Their search leads them to the African honey badger, an animal with a ferocious personality. The honey badger has an appetite for food ranging from small mammals and the young of large mammals to birds, reptiles, insects, carrion, and even a little vegetation, including juicy fruits. Honey badgers are native to areas of Africa and Asia, from southern Morocco to Africa’s southern tip, and western Asia’s Caspian Sea, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Nepal, and western India.

the outside, when desirous of giving the weapon an
ornamental finish, the maker winds spirally a shining
creeper, and then the pucuna is ready for action. They have no tribal organization; the small communities
in which they live being merely so many individuals
accidently brought together, often quarrelling
and separating from one another. These communities
rarely number over a hundred individuals, since, from
the nature of their country, a large number could not
find subsistence in any one place. It follows, therefore,
that the Bushman race must ever remain widely scattered—so
long as they pursue their present mode of
life—and no influence has ever been able to win them
from it. The desert seems to have been created
for them, as they for the desert; and when transferred
elsewhere, to dwell amidst scenes of civilized life,
they always yearn to return to their wilderness home.

Although the wolverine is known to have a thick hide, wolverines have been recorded killed by North American porcupine quills in a number of instances. It uses this together with its sharp claws, sharp teeth, powerful jaws, and thick skin and fur to protect its kills against much bigger predators, including wolves and bears. That’s how I have it set up for home defense, and that’s how every round has been fired through this gun has been shot in my hands.

But things were a little different in the case of the newly discovered honey badger bones. Honey badgers are listed under the Least Concern category of the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, so not one of Africa’s most endangered species. Even still, honey badgers are considered rare or at very low densities throughout most of their natural range. Another obstacle to the conservation of this unique species is the sheer size of their home range, with males occupying roughly 638 km², and females 138 km².

All the points are
of ivory, and the natural curve of the walrus tusk favors
and facilitates their construction. “The clothing of the women is of the same materials
as that of the men, but in shape almost every part is
different from the male dress. An inner jacket is worn
next the skin, and the fur of the other is outside. The
hind-flap, or tail, is of the same form before described,
but there is also a small flap in front, extending about
half-way down the thigh. The coats have each an immense
hood, which, as well as covering the head, answers
the purpose of a child’s cradle for two or three years
after the birth of an infant. The shoulders of
the women’s coat have a bag-like space, for the purpose
of facilitating the removal of the child from the hood
round to the breast without taking it out of the jacket.
