What a surprise this a.m. to see one of my favorite animals in your post! I guess that since “right from the beginning “ it was important to your guests to see a honey badger…he wanted to get a look @ them too! 😂
Wonderful photos!

Hi Jess, it’s not always possible to see a honey badger. I’m sure you all were very surprised to see one and especially on your guests last day of viewing. Badgers are very aggressive and yet very cute. Thanks for sharing your pictures and story.

Such a cute face for such an aggressive creature Jess..but I’m convinced he’s that badger who was kindly saved awhile ago by the Londo team, just coming out to show his thanks 😉☺️

Hi Jess, how lucky you and your guests were; I’d love to see a honey badger but haven’t yet after (now) 11 visits. It was nice to see you at Founders last week.
