Honey Badgers: Masters of Mayhem
Full Episode

“Honey badger is bad ass.” Those words and corresponding video became a YouTube sensation with 51 million hits. This relentless little creature is one of the most fearless animals in the world, renowned for its ability to confront grown lions, castrate charging buffalo, and shrug off the toxic defenses of stinging bees, scorpions, and snakes. Little is known about its behavior in the wild or why it is so aggressive. Our film will follow three badger specialists in South Africa who take on these masters of mayhem in ways that must be seen to be believed. (Video streaming restricted to U.S. and Territories.)

Honey Badgers: Masters of Mayhem premiered February 19, 2014 on PBS.
