The smartest animal on the planet: Watch video

honey badger

Honey Badgers may not sound like a butch name for an animal with any kind of extraordinary features but where they lose out in glamour, they make up for it with their larger that proportion brain size. A honey badger named Stuffles was badly injured after being mauled by a lion and the zoo keeper had to find a separate place for Stuffles to stay.

He even put a female honey badger in with the enclosure for Stuffles to let out his steam. The couple of honey badgers are shown cuddling and use their combined brain pans to cook up new ways to escape from their enclosure.

Have a look at how two honey badgers have been able to break their way out of every possible enclosure meant for them.
