This is from the "Weird But True" page in the New York Post today:

Two zoologists have helped save the world's "most fearless animal" - which will eat virtually anything - from angry beekeepers.

Keith and Colleen Begg of South Africa found that the beekeepers had been hunting and trapping endangered creatures called honey badgers because the animals were destroying hives while feasting on eggs, larvae and pupae.

The solution? Have the beekeepers raise their hives a mere three feet off the ground, where the badgers can't reach them. The Guinness Book of World Records lists the honey badger as the "most fearless animal" because it will eat anything from a scorpion to a python to a young polecat.

After reading so many articles with animal/investor analogies on this site, the first thing that popped into my mind was, "Which investors would be deemed 'most fearless' and 'eat' any type of smaller investor or in any market condition?" Adaptability and versatility are great tools to have in the arsenal of successful investing.
