Male Lion Sneaks Up on a Honey Badger

Incredible footage captures the moment a male lion sneaks up on a honey badger.

If you know anything about honey badgers, you’ll know that they are absolutely fearless. These daring little creatures regularly go up against some of the most fearsome predators, including leopards, pythons, hyenas and in this case, a male lion.

The rare encounter was caught on camera by Heiko Denker at Etosha National Park in Namibia.
