More information about Final Jeopardy:

The honey badger (named as such before its fondness for honey) is not afraid to get into a fight, which is particularly surprising for its small size (adult, about 11″ in height, 26″ in length, and about 35 pounds.)

Here’s a video of two honey badgers taking on six lions.

Since Alex Trebek’s diagnosis of stage 4 pancreatic cancer, many community members have been raising money. The Jeopardy! Fan Online Store is as well! All proceeds from any “Keep The Faith And We’ll Win” shirt sold will be donated to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. To date, over $370 has been raised.)
