Honey Badger Don’t Care

Up to 25 percent of the honey badger’s omnivorous diet consists of venomous snakes. But the honey badger doesn’t eat snakes out of desperation but because they are an excellent source of meat and, as a slow moving prey, for him easy to hunt.

The honey badger is resistant to snake venom. Evolving to withstand snake venom is like being the only person at a party who can eat the extra-hot salsa: You get it all to yourself.
