The beekeeper’s donkey


Beekeeper's DonkeyNo, that’s not a space suit. But it is protective gear. This donkey gets suited up to accompany his owner, farmer Manuel Juraci, out to harvest honey.

The protective gear keeps Boneco safe from stings and allows Juraci to bring home more honey than most other farmers in his rural town of Itatira, in the Brazilian state of Ceará.

You can see Juraci and Boneco in action in this video (the donkey action starts at about 4:15).
