This documentary looks at the honey badger, which is known as the “thug of the savanna” and one of the most fearless animals in the world. It’s renowned for its ability to confront grown lions and shrug off the toxic defenses of stinging bees, scorpions and snakes -- and for its hilarious YouTube videos (warning: YouTube video has some NSFW language).
