That's pretty cool, but eating something you're impervious isn't brave, so it's lame that they play that bit that way.

Mustelidae is now the most badass animal family.

Weasels, wolverines, and honey badgers.

They also have otters and ferrets.

i lol'd at this, 'despite being a nutcase death machine'...

ya they look like a pet until they open their mouth or are biting the head off a cobra. it actually looks 'psychotic' when it's hunting, you notice that? it's not just hunting, it's gone completely apeshit, so nutcase death machine fits very well.

i'd love to have one of those and domesticate it, but it would probably chew your throat out while you're sleeping.

The other day I saw a chick, pretty normal looking, walking a ferret down the street on a leash. My first thought was, "Jesus, that's one small dog." My second thought was, "Oh, hm. I see. Interesting choice."

Would have been cooler if it had been a wolverine or honeybadger.

Go Blue.

Quote from: Cracked article
In that one, short video, you can see a honey badger chasing a leopard away and climbing a tree just to attack a cobra -- presumably because it looked at him funny. But the perfect example of the honey badger's inability to give one hot shit comes around 2:15 into the video: One particular honey badger got hungry, so he went to find a nice meal. Now, he could snuffle around in the dirt all night, looking for the safest food source, but that sounds hard, and it might take a while. So instead, he opts to piss all over the very concept of survival instincts, and just eats the first damn thing he comes across. Unfortunately, it happens to be a puff adder -- one of the deadliest snakes in the world.

The badger stumbles across the snake midway through its own meal, so what's a badger to do? Why, steal the food straight from the death-serpent's jaws, of course, and then sit down to eat the snake's stolen meal right in front of him, while he furiously spits and hisses. When the badger finishes the snake's dinner, he's still a bit peckish, so he walks right over to the still-furious snake and mauls it to death, sustaining multiple bites in the process. Ignoring the deadly poison coursing through his veins, the badger settles in and starts eating the puff Aadder. Tragically, a few minutes later, he collapses.

And so ends the story of this honey badger, who died as he lived, spitting in the face of mortalit- what's that? He's back up? Holy shit! Two hours pass, and the badger miraculously resurrects himself from apparent death! He's been given a second chance at life! A second chance to ...

Go right back and continue eating that snake.
