Honey badger takes on python and 2 jackals

HuffPost staff writer

A ferocious honey badger valiantly fought a giant python and two jackals in a desperate struggle captured on camera.

Tourist Roselyne Kerjosse filmed the battle in Chobe Park, Botswana, in November.

The honey badger and the snake are locked in mortal combat when a jackal enters the picture. The snake appears to be strangling the badger, but the mammal slips free and gets the upper hand on the python, dragging it.

Another jackal then enters the fray and the two menace the badger, leading to a tug of war over the now-motionless python. Despite being outnumbered, the badger shows itself to be a true warrior.
