the best hunters

These generalist predators are known as some of the best hunters, as well as some of the most persistent pests, all across the world. Let’s look at some of their hunting and foraging methods to get an understanding of their worldwide reputation.

The primary method that honey badgers use to get their prey is through burrowing. Small rodents often burrow in the dirt, and honey badgers are adept at digging them out. Their claws are 2 inches long, and their bodies are incredibly muscled. This combination allows them to swiftly dig out their most common prey from holes and burrows.

Aside from digging, badgers are known to hunt by sight and smell. 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. They eat their whole prey, bones, skin, fur, and all.

Their ability to kill snakes and scorpions so well comes from their unusually tough skin and their natural immunity to venom. In fact, their skin is so tough and loose that they are quite literally impervious to arrows and spears. This helps them avoid snake bites but have some immunity even if they do happen to get tagged by a fang.

One strange adaption is that honey badgers have an anal pouch that can be outwardly inverted, releasing a smell. The smell is said to be so “suffocating” that it is theorized that it helps them calm angry beehives as it removes honey and larvae.

Do honey badgers attack farm animals?

 

Honey badgers don’t have a great relationship with humans in the areas that they clash. They are most famous for their predation of farm chickens and will go to great lengths in order to get them. They will usually rip planks of wood from shelters, dig under baseboards and stone foundations, and climb walls to get them. To make matters worse, they often engage in “surplus killing,” essentially killing en masse for the sport of it.

Aside from chickens, goats and sheep are occasionally attacked and killed. Although they are generally larger than a full-grown male (35 lbs), this doesn’t deter the badger. They are known to harass domestic herds, although it doesn’t happen as often as it does with chickens.

Humans have a tough time dealing with honey badgers, specifically because of their biological adaptations and their intelligence. Dogs aren’t able to harm a badger in any real way with their loose and thick skin, and even a machete struggles to harm one. The only real ways for rural farmers to deal with honey badgers are guns and a perfect club to the head.
