19. The Honey Badger

Franklin D. Roosevelt famously said, "we have nothing to fear but fear itself." If that's true, then the most self-actualized animal on the planet is the honey badger. In the wake of a hilarious viral video about the animal, the honey badger's insane bravado has now become much more widely admired. Simply speaking, "nothing can stop the honey badger when it's hungry." This little maniac is totally unintimidated by the size, sting, or venom of the creatures it fights on a daily basis. It will bust into termite mounds and bee hives, smack the smile off of jackals and cobras, and dig expansive tunnels for itself in 10 minutes flat. Honey badger don't care, and if you had its superpowers, neither would you.
