The honey badger was repeatedly bitten on the face by a poisonous snake and still had no fear. Will he be forced to surrender in the end?


Venomous snakes are notoriously dangerous reptiles in the wild due to their ability to quickly kill opponents regardless of size. However, the reason why snakes are not classified as top carnivores is because their deadly weapons are ineffective against some animals.

Weasels, badgers and civets are famous for their strong poison resistance, and are the top enemies of snakes. Most of these species do not only rely on this poison resistance ability but mainly defend themselves with flexible movements to avoid the snake’s fatal bites. There is only one species that does not bother to dodge attacks, just rushes straight to attack the enemy without regard for danger. That’s the honey badger.

This badger species does not have the ability to jump gracefully, but in return it possesses super thick skin that is difficult for even a lion or crocodile to hurt. The bites of venomous snakes only cause pain for a moment and do not leave much damage on the badger’s body.

However, snakes are still aggressive when agitated. Despite the difference in size, the snake does not hesitate to attack large enemies. It targets the badger’s weakest area: The head.

Being attacked directly, the badger could not help but feel pain and cower, but it did not give up and continued to respond to the snake. After many ineffective attacks, the poisonous snake knew it had no chance of winning and immediately turned and ran away. But the badger did not let go, trying to control and finish off the enemy. And finally, the badger was able to fix its head, strike the killing blow and then eat its prey.
