 Honey Badger fight, Ratel attackOcelot fight, big ocelot

Here we have a very interesting fight between the legendary Honey Badger of Africa and the Ocelot the small jungle cat of Central and South America.

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. Ratels do not discriminate when feeding, it will hunt and eat birds, rodents, tortoises, lizards and large snakes. They devour all parts of their prey, including skin, hair, feathers, flesh and bones, holding their food down with their forepaws.

The Ocelot acts very much like a small jaguar. It is the largest of the small Leopardus cat genus. Despite its size, it will take down prey as large as deer. Ocelots are also ferociously territorial and will fight one another, sometimes to the death, to defend its territory.

When pitted against each other, I feel the Ocelot would first engage the Ratel as it may look like a potential prey. The ratel, is known to scream loudly when it is backed into a corner, which would temporarily push back the cat. Once settled down, the Ocelot would pounce on the badger and bite down on its neck. However, the ratel has a secret defense, its skin is very thick and very loose, which allows it to turn all the way back at its attacker and clamp down on its throat with is powerful jaws.

Honey Badger wins!

I think a better oponent for the honey badger would be the wolverine. It too is a ferocious fighter, able to stand up to even a bear.

I cant believe that most people think that the shorter, weaker, lighte, less agressive honey badger would win.

My moneys on the ocelot, unless he gets cocky and tries to reload in the middle of a firefight.

SiberianTiger55, you really need to do some research. Nobody thinks the weaker, less aggressive honey badger would win. They know that the stronger (mustelids are more muscular than felids), MUCH more aggressive (they've been known to  
take on entire lion prides), more heavily defended (their skin is loose and tough enough to survive being attacked by swarms of killer bees), musk-shooting honey badger would bring down an ocelot with little effort.

This fight it too one sided. The honey badger would obviously win, quite easily. A better match would be a wolverine (IMO the wolverine would win that fight, but it would be close). Badgers are just too ferocious, they've been known to get bitten by extremely venomous snakes and just sleep it off, and on one account a badger killed a 6 foot monitor lizard and walked away unscathed.

badger will win..even with the wolverine..honey badgers can even hold their ground with bigger predators like jaguars or it can even win a fight with a cheetah..

This one's no contest. Few animals can match the strength, tenacity, stamina, durability and intelligence of a honey badger and the ocelot is NOT one of them. They are an immensely powerful animal. An ocelot? Not even a worthy contender in my opinion.

SiberianTiger, you really don't know much about the animal kingdom, do you? I like ocelots and other large cats, but honey badgers have a fierce reputation for a very good reason. This isn't even a close contest. As other people have noted, honey badgers aren't even afraid of LIONS. That's hundreds of pounds of cat, compared to an Ocelot's 40.

Cheetah's have been known to take down Ratels. Ocelot would be similar if not more dangerous than the cheetah. Ocelot has surprising strength, is much more agressive, and can fight MUCH better than any cheetah, so Ocelot takes down Ratel with ease.  
 
Ocelot vs Cheetah would be a better fight.

My friends and I are debating over who would win: Honey badger or Tiger. Need results. In this case(Ocelet vs. badger)HONEY BADGER WINS BY A LONGSHOT!!!!

You're such an idiotic cat fanatic. The honey badger has actually been proven to be the world's most aggressive animal, and it has its own amazing strength for its size. Add that to the fact that its skin is far too thick and loose for the ocelot to penetrate before the badger got a chokehold, not to mention the badger's superior intellect, and it's a no-argument victory for the honey badger. You're such a lying dumbass. Stop sucking cat cock and face facts: the honey badger wins this battle easily.
