Honey Badgers, the most dangerous animal in the world

We've been acting like tourists while our long-time family friend is here in South Africa to visit, and it's been so much fun seeing and doing things we don't normally do! We've gone to the Moholoholo Rehabilitation Centre in Hoedspruit, visited the Blyde River Canyon (3rd biggest in the world), Bourke's Luck Potholes, a few big waterfalls, and more. I'm (Gordon) posting pics from all the bustle.

Aparently though, the Honey Badger is not the most dangerous animal in the world... this is a myth. I looked it up on Wikipedia anyway and that's what it said. :)
