Anything we can do animals do better.

And now please give it up for Boneco – the world’s first beekeeping donkey!

Boneco’s unusual career path is thanks to his owner Manuel Juraci, who is you guessed it, a beekeeper in Itatira, Brazil.

Juraci came up with the idea of customising a suit for Boneco so he could collect more honey – while protecting his faithful companion from being stung.

Working together, the pair are proving a commercial success – and have even attracted the attention of the Association of Honey Producers, which has reportedly expressed an interest in working with Juraci to make custom suits for their animals too.
