I love to code. I believe everything is programmed in a certain way to make it work. From human brains to every single command in the machines.

The honey badger has a long body but is characteristically thick-set and broad across the back. Its skin is quite loose, and it allows it to turn and twist freely within it. The Badgers’ head is small and flat, and they have short muzzles.

They have several distinctive features that allow them to defend themselves against predators, which include ridges on the skin to avoid detrimental harm during sparring. It has short, sturdy legs, with five toes on each foot.

The feet display very powerful claws, which are short on the hind legs and very long on the forelimbs. Its soles are thick and padded up to its wrists. The tail is short and covered with long hair. The skin of the animal is difficult to penetrate, which affords them the ability to deter their predators.
