This 25 January 2019 video says about itself:
Lions intimidated by the fierce honey badgers
Honey badgers are known for their fearless nature and fierce attitude but even they are a bit cautious by their standards when facing a whole lion pride, nonetheless they left the scene unharmed simply due to their ferocious attitude.
Occurred on September, 2017 / Thornybush Nature Reserve, Rivonia, South Africa
Video filmer: “The video was taken on my morning game drive. We were tracking lions and found them but the lions got up and were moving. While they were moving, the lions and us in the game viewing vehicle stumbled upon the honey badgers. The badgers now had to move away from the vehicles and try and scare the lions away, which is not easy when you are drastically smaller than both. The badgers are extremely fierce animals and lions generally stay away from them. Some lions needed a new lesson on what they are cable of doing.”
