You can see the only honey badger in the UK at Howletts Wild Animal Park in her home near to the Pavilion Restaurant. Tembe, like all honey badgers is an incredible animal; they are powerful, fearless and highly intelligent. We’re proud to have Tembe at Howletts!

Honey badgers are also known as Ratel, they thrive across most of Africa and parts of Asia. Their skin is thick and tough and is almost impossible to pierce. It is also loose, so that if they are pinned down by a predator, they can twist round and protect themselves.
Honey badgers are so tough that they can survive venomous snake bites that would kill a human!
