Got a package today with my newest mustelid.
Although it is not really a badger and not part of the meles genus its name still is iconic:
Honey badger
Mellivora capensis

You can see it comparison to my european badger (middle) and my american badger (right).
I am absolutely thrilled to have one in my collection now. It is not perfect but an amazing skull nonetheless.

Interesting deviation in the sagittal crest... any idea of the cause?

Nice pic. I had imagined a honey badger would have a bigger skull!

Very cool!! It is a beautiful skull

I saw this one a while back, maybe it's something for you:

A deformed Chinese badger skull. Too bad it's too pricey for me.

Schöne Ergänzung :)


Wirkt das nur auf dem Bild so, oder ist der Honigdachs echt ein wenig "schräg"? ^^
