A Honey Badger Cracks Open a Thick Ostrich Egg

Short | 01:43

Ostrich eggs can weigh up to three pounds and have some of the hardest shells around. This honey badger, however, isn't about to let any of that get in the way of a tasty, protein-filled snack.

More About This show

On the harsh and unforgiving plains of central Namibia, Africa, a young honey badger named Grit has just left home to venture out in the great, wide world, but it won't be easy. Fewer than half of all young honey badgers survive their first few weeks on their own, as they deal with intense heat, starvation, and round-the-clock threats from the many predators of the savannah. In a world where every day is as relentless as the last, Grit will need resourcefulness, resilience, and a little bit of luck in order to survive.
