    No John, it’s a honey badger. This is a wolverine. The former is African, the latter American. Different genus as well.

    Wolverines and honey badgers do share something in common, besides any physical characteristics. Attitude. It shows in the picture.

    They both have a superiority complex that makes them determined fighters and cunning opponents.

    Both animals have inspired legendary tales of ferocity tinged with evil.
