    The Honey Badger thing in the first link was something I’ve seen before. While I don’t have any personal experience with Honey Badgers I’m willing to bet money that the video narration and caption were exaggerated in the extreme. It doesn’t help that they cobbled together at least two different instances of snake/badger interaction to make the segment showing badger predation on snakes. Do they really think that they can show a puff adder and then some sort of cobra (which they call a puff adder) and have anyone believe that it is the same event? Hell, those snakes don’t look anything alike. It would be hard to find two snakes of comparable size that look less alike. What BS.
    Oh, and the candiru thing? I think the word they’re looking for is urethra. I’m pretty sure that most of us (at least 50%) know that women don’t pee out of their vaginas.
