The New Zealand government has launched a new online version and online version for the infamous honey badger, the first known to have appeared on the planet.
The honey badgers were the first creatures to have been introduced to New Zealand.
They were originally thought to be the result of a hoax, but a research team led by Dr Tim Rennie says the story is more likely to have come from an animal or insect that had a honey badging as a signature trait.
“The honeybadger is a pretty good example of an animal that has been identified as a new species and the story has been told a lot in the scientific community and that’s one of the reasons why we’ve decided to create this online version,” Dr Rennis said.
“We’ve got this whole history of the story of how we came to be where we are now and it’s one that we’ve wanted to tell.”
Honeybadgers have also been featured in films including Avatar, The Lion King, Jurassic Park and Avatar 2.
They have also played a role in films such as Beauty and the Beast, Jurassic World, The Jungle Book and Beauty and The Beast 2.
In 2009, New Zealand’s Ministry of Primary Industries created a new animal taxonomy for the country’s honey badged honey badgies to help protect their identity.
They are now extinct, but scientists are looking to reintroduce them back.
The Government is now working to develop an online and an online edition of the honey badgoer and hopes to have it available in the spring.
“It’s a very exciting time to be working on this project because we are really close to being able to reintroducing these species into New Zealand,” Dr Rob Renni said.
New Zealand has a long history of introducing animals to the island.
It was the first country to introduce an invasive species to the country, the koala in 1884.
In 1901, the Kiwi were first to introduce a dog into the country and the country has been a dog country ever since.
“This is one of those areas that we really want to be able to make this work, but we’re really lucky to have this support from the Department of Conservation and New Zealand Science Centre,” Dr Chris Smith said.
