Amapajama was born at the Pretoria Zoo in 1995, and despite her age she is still eager to solve the puzzles that the guides leave for her. She loves to play in her water pond and also with the hosepipe.
Although Honey Badgers are known for their aggressive behaviour, Amapajama can be a bit of a sweetie pie!
