In part one of this series I wrote about the extraordinary interaction between the Honeyguide and Honey Badger. The result was one of Africa's most ferocious animals, the Honey Badger, being led by the Honeyguide to a beehive and then leaving a piece of honey comb as a reward for the Honeyguide.
Let's backup a little and begin with Honeyguide and look at this interaction from another angle. The guide has flown around searching for the hive. Eventually this persistent creature finds honey either in a tree or between rocky crags. His instincts demand that he share this energy giving treasure with others so he flies off to tell others of his discovery.
The Honeyguide's quest is to locate one the most feared omnivores in Africa, the Honey Badger. Not for a moment does the guide think that this ruthless creature could eat him on a whim. The little tweeter is on a mission of sharing and is not deterred with negative notions.
