Honey Badger Skull Replica

Mellivore capensis.,The African honey badger, also called the ratel, is native to regions of Africa, India and the Middle East. This large mustelid has a fierce reputation for aggressiveness. This species is named for the honey it seeks. Honey badgers use their large powerful claws to open beehives, where they feed on the honey, but are careful to leave the larvae. Honey badgers have a symbiotic relationship with the honey guide bird. This bird leads the badger to a honey source. The badger opens the source and, when full, leaves the bird to feed on the left-over honey. Other Names: Ratel, "African Badger"
