Honey Badger  vs   Wolverine

HB1Wolverine teeth and growl

This fight features two of our readers favorite combatants, the Honey Badger from South Africa and the Wolverine of North America. Both of these animals have fearless reputations and have been known to fight off much bigger predators from their prey. Let's take a closer look to see just how a fight between these little warriors would turn out.

Tale of the Tape:

STATS

Wolverine

Honey Badger

Height:

12-18" at shoulder

10-14" at shoulder

Length:

26 to 34 in

20 to 28 in

Weight:

25 to 70 lbs

15-35 lbs.

     

The Wolverine is the largest of the weasle family but resembles and acts like a small Bear. It is stocky muscular and ferocious. Male wolverines can weigh up to 70 lbs and reach a length of 3 ft. The Wolverine has been known to attack prey many times its size, with documented accounts of predation of moose. The wolverine has large teeth and a bite force that enables it to crush bones and frozen carcasses.

The Honey Badger, despite its name, biologically is more closely related to a Wolverine than badger species. Like the Wolverine, the ratel is notorious for its ferocity and fearless nature, even being able to scare lions and leopards away from their kills. The Honey badger has been deemed by the guiness book of world records as the most fearless animal on the planet. It is stocky but quick and has thick but loose skin that provides protection from attack.

The Fight

A 30 lb honey badger locks in on the scent of a large mammal carcass near by and quickly scampers towards it. Approaching the carcass, the honey badger learns that he is not first to the kill as a 50 lb wolverine has already started to dig in.  The fearless honey badger still has his eye on the prize and darts at the wolverine to scare it off. However, the wolverine is extremely aggressive when provoked and the fight ensues between the two stubborn animals. The speed of the honey badger allows it to get in close and smack the wolverine with its 3 in claws, drawing first blood. The honey badger takes a bite at the wolverine but finds its fur too thick to inflict much damage. The wolverine counter attacks with a bite to the neck of the honey badger, however only catching some of its thick skin. This allows the badger to turn back around and take another shot at the wolverine. The wolverine uses this opportunity to take another bite of his own, this time to the leg of the honey badger. It crushes the smaller animals bones with its powerful jaw before finishing it with a claw to the underbelly.

Wolverine Wins!

Wolverine fight, wolverine attackbaboon fight, baboon attack

Interesting animal fight between two very different animals of similiar size from different ends of the world.

The Wolverine is the largest of the weasle family but resembles and acts like a small Bear. It is stocky muscular and ferocious. Male Wolverines can weigh up to 70 lbs and reach a length of 3 ft. The Wolverine has been known to attack prey many times its size. 

Olive Baboons can be as tall as 4 ft and weight close to 65 lbs. When provoked, hungry or defending their young they can be extremely aggressive. Baboons hunt smaller prey on normal conditions, but they are strong, quick, and nasty. The Baboon's canine teeth grow as long as 2.5 inches (longer than a Lion's).

The Baboon is bigger and much more agile. However, the Wolverine does not lose many confrontations and has been witnessed scaring off Wolves and even Bears from their kill. In this fight its relentless attacking will be a huge factor and it will eventually tear into the monkey

Wolverine wins.
