The Honey Badger is a type of Friend that appeared in the original Kemono Friends mobile game.

Appearance

Honey Badger has gray eyes and a bandaid on her nose, she has long hair with four colors, sandy brown at the base, with a white line separating it from the gray and black color at the end. Her long tail has the same coloration, but inverted, and has a pair of gray animal ears at the top of her head. She wears a white shirt with a red tie, and a black cardigan on top. She has a red cape attached to her uniform by two buttons at the front. She wears a sandy brown short skirt, black leggings and shoes of the same color as her skirt.

In Real Life

Honey Badgers are widely distributed throughout Africa south of the Sahara, the Arabian Peninsula, Western Asia and the Indian Peninsula. Characterized by having a stocky body, they usually have a body length of 60 to 70 cm and a mass ranging from 8 to 12 kg. In general the lower half of the body is a dark black, with an upper mantle that is either gray or bright white. This species is also known as the ‘ratel’, an Afrikaans word for ‘rattle’, as it is known to make a rattle-like cry

With large front claws and very thick skin, that prevents a predator from getting a firm grasp on their body, Honey Badgers are known to be notoriously aggressive animals, which results in them not having an extensive list of predators. They are carnivorous and opportunistic foragers, feeding on eggs, small rodents, snakes, birds, and frogs, but they can also eat fruit, roots, bulbs, and the bee larvae and honey inside bee hives.

Trivia

  • Honey Badgers associate with birds of the species Greater Honeyguide. Honeyguides will lead them to hidden insect hives which they can break open and feed on, while the bird gains access to the previously inaccessible supply of wax and larvae.
  • The Guinness Book of World Records named them the most fearless animal in the world.
  • It is likely that the Honey Badger also has resistance to snake venom, although the exact physiological mechanism has not been demonstrated.
