Covering Your Entire Body In Bees, Would You Do It?

 

Ruan Liangming of China covered his entire body in bees during a nail-biting attempt to create the ultimate “bee beard”. “Bee bearding” is a carnival act thought to date back to the 19th century. Performers place a queen bee on their bodies which then attracts thousands of the flying insects. Ruan successfully set a record for the Heaviest mantle of bees, which weighed a daunting 63.7 kg (140 lb ) and consisted of approximately 637,000 individual bees, including a terrifying 60 queens. The secret is you must keep calm when dealing with bees and don’t move……. Ed
