Science obsessed Smithsonian Channel published this nature video waay back in 2011, but it has only exploded with viral viewership now, amassing over 300,000 views just over the past week. 

The nature clips features two dangerous animals butting heads in the Kalahari Desert. Well, at least one animal attempting to butt heads.

After confronting a honey badger face to face, the porcupine attempts all of its usual offensive moves, first shaking its quills and then attacking.

But the honey badger isn’t badgered at all as the porcupine as its quills seem useless against the hide of the badger.
