I have been known to fumigate an area before harvesting my favorite food. 2. I can get up to 175lbs. Vegatarian. Nickname "Diver" Live in dense forest, short straight horns, my relatives first names are grey, blue and red. 3. Largest member of the antelope family that lives in the forest I weigh 500-900 lbs. Spirial horns, and to make it easy, I got stripes.

1) easy.... Honey badger
2)another easy one....duiker
3) I think you tried a little trick with this one. The key, I believe is forest,so......how about the bongo? The kudu is from the savana as is the eland. OOOPPPs, I think I just threw a monkey wrench into this. The lord derbys or giant eland is found in the somewhat forested area of the CAR. This guy can weigh a ton.

1 honey badger
2 Yellow-backed Duiker
3 bongo


Not Idi?

This response submitted by cur on 1/10/05 at 9:57 PM. ( ) 4.252.240.198

1. Raitel
2. Duiker actually comes in 10-13 flavors
3. Probably Bongo, but Bongo has Lyre shaped horns......Kudu has corkscrew horns but lives in Savannah. Eland has spiral horns, no stripes.

Or is it Idi?

Tell them why the honey badger is called a raitel. A couple of months ago another shaver was shaving one and opened up that gland in the rear. I couldnt go back in the shaving room for an hour- it was that bad. This made a skunk smell like daisy!


Do I need to fill out a 1099 ?

We we will meet again
Far beyond the stormy weather
Far beyond the cloudy skies
We we will meet again
When we do we will last forever
When we do we will stay together
You and me


Ratel Raitel Honey Badger

This response submitted by cur on 1/10/05 at 10:21 PM. ( ) 4.252.240.198

The Ratel (Mellivora capensis) is a member of the mustelid tribe, and is considered a badger. It has a powerful odor gland similar to a skunk, but an Africanized, enhancement to the apparatus. They are as mean as a wolverine, and smell worse than a skunk. They are known for a cross-partnership arrangement with a little bird called a "honey-guide" which leads the ratel to bee hives by a display process.

The ratel rips open the nest, and the little birdy gets some honey as a reward. They eat dang near anything you please from small antelope to turtle eggs and all in between. Not much fools with them, because the protein ain't worth the smell and the wounds they can deliver even to lions and leopards. Last time I was in South Africa they were protected.
