This honey badger at San Diego Zoo likes the provided enrichment. But it could well be that its enthusiasm was due to the approaching lunch. As you can see he loves rabbit, all of it. (Don't forget to pay attention to the comments made by the family watching the honey badger enjoying its meal.)Although its name suggests otherwise, the honey badger does not closely resemble other badger species. Instead, it bears more anatomical similarities to weasels. The honey badger, or ratel, is primarily a carnivorous species and has few natural predators because of its thick skin and ferocious defensive abilities.
