EDITORS COMMENTS
This print, sourced from Mary Evans Picture Library, showcases the enchanting and tenacious Bewick's Honey Badger, scientifically known as Mellivora capensis or Ratel. Named curiously after the famous children's character Winnie the Pooh due to its insatiable love for honey, this mustelid species is an intriguing resident of South Africa. Honey Badgers, historically known for their fearless nature, have been documented since the late 18th century. In 1790, Thomas Bewick, a renowned English naturalist and printmaker, created this illustration, capturing the essence of this remarkable creature. The Bewick's Honey Badger is not only known for its affinity towards honey but also for its incredible strength and resilience. Weighing around 2.5 kilograms, it is one of the most powerful animals relative to its size. Despite its small stature, the Honey Badger is not an animal to be trifled with. It fearlessly tackles larger predators, such as leopards and hyenas, to protect its territory and food sources. Its unique adaptations, including a thick coat of quills and powerful jaws, make it an unyielding force in the African wilderness. This print not only serves as a testament to the natural world's wonders but also highlights the importance of preserving the diverse wildlife that calls South Africa home. The Bewick's Honey Badger, with its endearing nickname and unwavering spirit, continues to inspire curiosity and admiration among nature enthusiasts and scientists alike.
