“Honey badger is bad ass.”  Those words and corresponding video became a YouTube sensation with 66 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 behaviour 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…

“Still, they get a good film out of it. In these days of high technology and short attention spans, it’s tough getting an hour of television out of one animal.”  The Guardian
