As the days get longer and warmer we are having some amazing sightings. In particular, I have had some awesome sightings of what are generally nocturnal creatures, during the day…!
One of the amazing creatures that I have seen often are Honey Badgers (Mellivora capensis).
These fearless little animals are fierce carnivores with a keen sense of smell and a sweet tooth for beehives. They are also notorious for their snake killing abilities. The males are a little bigger than the females. They are heavily built, with a broad head, small eyes, virtually no external ears, and a relatively blunt snout.
