That was awesome!
I hope you watched all the way to the end to see the "drunk badger" part.-DrC
Yeah, get bitten by a puff adder? Roll over and sleep it off.Tis but a flesh wound.
This description from wikipedia looks like what I was watching:In a 2002 National Geographic documentary titled "Snake killers: Honey badgers of the Kalahari", a badger named Kleinman was documented stealing a meal out of a puff adder's mouth and casually eating the meal in front of the hissing snake. After the meal, Kleinman began to hunt the puff adder, the species being one of the badger's preferred venomous snakes. He managed to kill the snake and began eating it, but then collapsed on the dead snake as he had been bitten during the struggle. After about two hours he surprisingly awoke. Once his paralysis had subsided, the badger continued with his meal and then resumed his journey.
Can someone please explain to me why I was rooting for the badger after it was bitten by the snake?
I think that is the first time I have ever felt sorry for a snake.
