In nature, not every animal that is large in size, or has a larger number, is sure to win. On the contrary, even small animals can surprise you. The proof is in the video below, when a honey badger unilaterally defended against an attack from 3 leopards, and even caused the enemy to flee.
Meticulously shot in Kruger National Reserve (South Africa), the video opens with a honey badger being overpowered by three young leopards: One grabs his head, and the other tries to tear it off. ripped off its back body.
However, the honey badger does not “lay down and endure the battle”. It rolled many times, trying to escape the control of the leopard, and at the same time used its short but sturdy legs to defend against hunters despite being at a disadvantage.
