By now we understand that the honey badger is a badass, but you may not realize just how smart and cunning these creatures are. The animals in this video are showing that they’ll escape their pen against all odds. It started with unlocking a fence, then when the structure was changed, they resorted to rocks and even mud to perform their escape act. To make things even more interesting, they’ve also apparently taken to breaking into houses during the dead of night.

Surprisingly, the man who is caring for the honey badgers has no problem chasing after them after they escape. Given how deadly these little animals can be, you’re not likely to see me running after them in the same manner.
