“An elusive creature that, pound for pound, is one of Africa's fiercest carnivores”

African husband-and-wife research team Keith and Colleen Begg explore the world of Mellivora capensis, the fierce and fearless African Honey Badger.

For three years, David and Carol Hughes, along with Keith and Colleen Begg followed and filmed the lives of habituated wild badgers in the Kalahari wilderness as part of the first intensive study of these amazing carnivores (for their other DVD on honey badgers see Badger Quest: Honey Hunters of Niassa).

Honey badgers may look innocent, about the size of an average dog, but these fearless foragers prey on more than 60 different species in the Kalahari, including some of the region's most dangerous snakes. One honey badger was seen eating over 30 feet of snakes in just three days.

Join honey badger experts Keith and Colleen Begg who, through research, film and photography, have compiled the most extensive study to date of honey badgers in the wild. Their cameras capture not only the heroic saga of a remarkable couple working in the wild, but the natural history of one of the world's most unique and extraordinary creatures.

In this rare documentary we see:

  •     Honey badgers hunting lizards, rats and snakes, even up in the trees
  •     How the badgers live with the local jackals, goshawks, Cape foxes and geckos
  •     Scientists radio tracking some honey badgers
  •     The mother care for her cub
  •     How one of the badgers survives a bite by an adder
  •     The amazing skills of a Bushman tracker.

In 2002 this film won 1st Place in the Animal Behaviour Category at the International Wildlife Film Festival (Missoula) and was nominated for The Chris Award for Science and Technology at the Columbus Film and Video Festival.

In 2003 it won best Animal behaviour at the Jackson Hole Film Festival, USA. It also won best Animal Behaviour at the Japanese Wildlife Film Festival and best Scientific Film at the FIFA International Wildlife Film Festival in 2003.
