Wikipedia article

This article is about an older version of DF.
A small mammal known to defend itself ferociously in combat, often fighting off multiple animals many times its size.

Honey badgers are similar to normal badgers, but found in tropical and desert regions. They can randomly become enraged from time to time. Unlike regular badgers they do not come in groups, and they will attempt to infiltrate your fortress to steal your food.

Honey badgers have at least 28 teeth, which can sometimes be knocked out in a single strike.

They have a reputation among players for attacking random dwarves at the most inopportune moments, such as knocking fisherdwarves into rivers or dwarves working at high elevations off mountains, usually leading to their death from drowning or typical falling complications.
