Honey Badger Or Electric Eel – Which Is Tougher?



Honey Badger vs Electric eel in Epic Battle to the Death

It is important to note that the Honey Badger and Eel both live on separate continents. And so, this is a hypothetical fight.


The Honey Badger can be found in Africa and the Electric Eel lives in the Amazon i.e South America.

They could only fight if the honey badger got into the water with the eel. The eel would keep shocking the badger until it got out of the water or until it died.

Which animal is Tougher – Honey Badger or Electric eel?

Since the honey badger is an air breather, it would not be able to easily get at the eel, while the eel could detect the badger’s presence in even muddy water, and keep shocking it.

So in the Honey Badger vs Electric eel in Epic Battle to the Death. The electric eel wins that one.

What animals can survive an electric eel sting?

Some animals, Apes, hippopotamus, and Elephants, can use insulation to deal with electricity and hence can survive stings from an electric eel.

A honey badger may not be able to. It would get shocked and find something else to eat.

It is also possible that the honey badger would probably kill the eel by ripping it apart and inflicting bite wounds, but when it does, the eel will electrocute it to death.

Honey Badger Or Electric Eel - Which Is Tougher?

The Reason why a Honey Badger would kill an Electric eel

Honey Badger can wrestle the world’s most venomous snakes and still come out victorious, Badgers can survive attacks from Lions, hyenas, and leopards.

Honey Badger can survive attacks from Giant hornets, Bee stings, scorpion stings, and all manner of venomous creatures.

It is still a surprise as to why a Honey Badger isn’t Immortal. Just like every living thing It’ll die eventually.

The Honey Badger can live for up to 24 years in captivity.

The Reason why an Electric Eel would kill a Honey Badger

Now, let’s talk a little about an Electric eel as well. The name Electric eel can be really confusing, one might think it’s an eel when in fact it’s a fish with a volt of up to 860. The sting is powerful enough to incapacitate a horse.

An Electric eel is considered a formidable creature i.e no animal can feed on them. They have no natural enemies in their habitat.

No animal can devour them and that’s because of the powerful electricity generated through their body.

Any animal that comes close to an electric eel dies of shock or flees away, and this includes humans. Honey Badger Or Electric Eel – Which Is Tougher?

Can an electric eel kill you?

No – There’s no record of humans dying from an electric eel sting. The worst-case scenario is heart failure, respiratory distress and possibly drowning as a result of an electric eel stunning jolt.

Electric eel predators

The electric eel has no natural predator in the wild, and since it bases in Amazon, no creature in the Amazon rainforest can kill an electric eel

However in a hypothetical fight

I wrote an article on a hypothetical fight between an electric eel and animals most likely to kill them.

I made mention of Honey Badger, elephants, Humpback whales, and porcupines. I also believe a Hippopotamus should be included on that list.

And this is my reason. From what I stated above: I believe some animals, apes, hippopotamus, and elephants, can use insulation to deal with electricity.

These animals have thick impervious skin that can deter foreign objects from penetrating their bloodstream.

These animals can withstand electricity far better than most animals including humans for sure.

And so, it’s possible that they can kill an electric eel before the electric eel kills them.

Do you think it’s possible to survive an electric eel attack?

Although there’s no record of humans dying from an electric eel, there are records of humans drowning in water as a result of electric eel shock.

What about a Honey Badger – Can it survive an electric eel attack?

I’m only a passionate student of wildlife. I would love to hear your opinion on the matter. Thanks.

An animal handler who survived a gator attack is speaking out about the harrowing ordeal.

A gator bit down on 31-year-old Lindsay hands during feeding time at a reptile and animal zoo, as children at a birthday party looked on.

Bull jumped into the glass enclosure to get better leverage. Then the gator whipped the trainer underwater in what’s known as a “death roll.” She now reveals why she jumped in purposely, and how her gymnastics experience may have saved her.
