Back in the day, I recall someone getting excited about “tool using animals” when a monkey was using a stick to pull ants out of a hive for dinner. (His, not theirs)
Granted, that’s pretty good, but there are plenty of examples of animals (other than humans) using tools.
Personally, I am partial to Swedish Badgers over honey badgers, because I love their fur patterning and they’re not quite as hostile-looking as North American Badgers. But, as you probably already know, nasty-ass honey badgers don’t give a shit.*
Let me introduce you to Stoffle, a honey badger who says, “give me liberty, or I’ll take it!”
I don’t think his escapes are probably going to help him much; he’d be wiser to attempt to enjoy his captivity. But perhaps Stoffle enjoys the challenge.

I admit, honey badgers are seriously badass, even for badgers. And that’s saying something.
