Honey Badger or Hippopotamus – Which is more Aggressive



Honey badger vs hippopotamus - which is more aggressive?

In my opinion, I think Honey Badger is the world’s most aggressive animal in the world. The hippopotamus takes second place.

Hippopotamus takes second place because they are responsible for 500 human deaths every year.

Survival Instincts

Honey Badgers can survive the bites of the most venomous snakes and insects. 

They can survive swamps of bees and ants attacks as well.

The effects of venom take a little effect on the badger but it’s nothing a little sleep can’t cure.

While a hippopotamus is known for its aggressive nature, great size, and impervious thick skin. The honey badger is known for its high pain tolerance, aggressiveness, and survival nature.

What do you think would happen if a honey badger goes head to head with a hippo?

Honey Badger or Hippopotamus - Which is more Aggressive

Well, a hippo is bigger than the honey badger and mouth large enough to devour a badger in one bite, with a canine of 4 inches long 150 degrees wide.

A mouth massive enough to devour a whole watermelon in one bite. The badger doesn’t stand a chance against a hippo, in any way, shape, or form.

The badger’s claws and razor-sharp mouth would have zero to little effect on the hippo’s impervious skin. A skin said to almost deter bullets.

The honey badger doesn’t stand a chance against a hippopotamus.


Male honey badgers are bigger than females and so most males weigh between 9 to 16 kg (20 to 35 lb).

The male hippopotamus is considered most stubborn and territorial as well, weighing 3,500 to 9,920 lbs. (1,600 to 4,500 kg). The Most Deadly Animal in the world

Honey Badger or Hippopotamus - Which is more Aggressive

Both Honeybadger and Hippopotamus are aggressive and able to defend themselves against apex predators like Lion and hyenas.

If Honey Badgers can survive Venomous bites from Snakes and Insects, What about a hippopotamus? Can Hippoptamus survive bites from venomous creatures?

Honey badgers would wrestle with lethal venomous snakes and still win, I also believe if a badger goes head to head with an electric eel it would most likely win the battle.

A hippopotamus would get really mad and probably trample the electric eel, not sure if the electric shock would do much damage to its thick impervious skin.

Hippos and Badgers both live in the woodlands, grasslands, or savannah, a habitat where lions also reside.

Hippos prefer the swamps, staying submerged in water for up to 20hrs a day. Allowing them to regulate their body’s temperature.

While badgers live underground, digging up holes and living under them.

would you Rather have a hippopotamus or Honeybadger as pets?

Well, so far, there’s no report that a honey badger ever killed humans, however, there are reports that hippopotamus has killed about 500 humans in Africa. How to Survive the Most Vicious Animal Bites

What’s your take on this?

I would love to hear your answers in the comments section about

Can Hippoptamus survive bites from venomous creatures?”

In my opinion

A hippo’s hide is very thick, so I think the snake might not be able to get the venom into the bloodstream.

In that case, the hippo would be fine. Also, they are very large animals, so the venom would have to be very potent, or there’d need to be a lot of it to have any significant effect on a hippopotamus.

It is said that a king cobra venom is not the most potent among venomous snakes, but the amount of neurotoxin they can deliver in a single bite—up to two-tenths of a fluid ounce—is enough to kill 20 people, or even an elephant.

So if a King cobra venom can kill a ELEPHANT , WHAT ABOUT A HIPPOPTAMUS?

The Skin of an Elephant is thick as well, even more, thick than that of a hippopotamus, so if the amount of neurotoxin delivered by King cobra is enough to kill an elephant, it sure can kill a hippopotamus as well.

I guess the Honey Badger still takes the lead as the most aggressive animal on earth solely due to its ability to overcome venomous bites from deadly creatures.

Alligator Attacks Handler in Front of Children’s Birthday Party

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.
