I must say your answer to the dacshund vs honey badger is quite wrong, you underestimate dacshunds. The word "dacshund" directly translated from german to english means "badger dog" as they were bred specifically to control the badger population. An average specimen dacshund should have zero problem with even the finest specimen of honey badger. Dacshunds may be a cute cuddly gentile sweetheart as a pet, but make no mistake they have a mean streak that isnt to be tempted.

Expertise

I can answer most questions relating to real or hypothetical situations. I have a better understanding of animal behavior and specifically predatory behavior and interspecies predatory relationships. Mammals is my field of expertise but I can do my best in answering questions regarding other animals. Small mammals are my favourite matchups. One or two prehistoric match-ups is OK, but please do not focus on them as they are outside my expertise.

Experience

Even before completing my degree I considered myself an expert in mammal behavior. Doing my degree only furthered my interest and knowledge in the subject. After uni I got the opportunity to spend 6 months in South Africa and Kenya where I spent nearly every day basically observing and studying the animals of the savanna.

Education/Credentials
BSc Degree in Zoology from the Melbourne University, Australia.
