Chinese beekeeper She Ping, 32, covered his body with 33.1 kg of bees — an estimated 331,000 of the creatures — in one hour in Southwest China’s Chongqing municipality, April 18, 2012. Local media reported that She Ping had broken the previous China record of 59 pounds (26.8 kg) of bees which had been set by another beekeeper, Ruan Liangming, in 2008. She Ping, a third generation of beekeeper in his family, said he kept himself unwashed for three days to better attract bees.
