Honey Badgers

Just posting on the off chance.

Has any off-topicer had any first-hand combat experience with a honey badger?

I know that they are legend in the unarmed-combat stakes for fearlessness, but is it true that this above-weight classfighter always goes for your balls?

What are their strategies when faced with a female opponent?

My great grandfather was a professional honey badger wrestler in the 20s.

As well as a disciplined approach to athleticism, undescended testes were his real defence.

Is this the gentleman in question?

Honey Badgers are quite tame.

It's the Honey Nadgers you've got to look out for.

Generally, if a man maintains a standing position, the honey badger is too short to reach and will instead go for the ankles. However, if you adopt a crouching position they may be provoked into rising to the challenge - see below:

On the other hand they may just cosh you with a breeze-block!

Does anyone know if regular UK badgers go for honey?

Reason I ask is that we usually have honey bees nesting in the garden and a couple of years ago I came home from work to find a rather deep hole in the garden and hundreds of dead bees all around it.

I assume some animal dug down to get the honey but I had no idea what could do that and withstand so many stings.

More likely a squirrels airstrike, gyroscope malfunction with resulting collateral damage.

What part of the UK are you in?

Honey badgers do migrate - though their flight patterns are poorly understood.

Migrating honey badgers have recently been recorded as far north as the Channel Islands and some parts of the West Country.

Probably another effect of global warming - though no doubt the deniers/conspiracy theorists would put it all down to deleted emails.

I saw a badger tonight on my run !!

Now it was not a honey badger - but it was a reddish one.

Running through a path near my house in the rain. Saw it in the distance just on the same path. Mustn't of heard me coming due to the pounding rain. Got pretty close to it and was still not sure what it was. Dark red colour. Then when it turned round I saw it's black and white face and realised it was a badger. Must have been rolling about in the path or something. Wasn't even dark though which is strange for a badger - is it not ?

Very exciting. Especially as I was within a few feet of it, running quite fast and suddenly remembered their reputation for being vicious if cornered !!

Luckily he scurried away into a bush.

I don't know but I want one of the little blighters as a pet.
