The Bodi tribe is found in Southern Ethiopia. The motto of the tribe is, ‘The bigger the better’.
Bodi men compete to have the fattest belly in the village by drinking a gruesome mixture of blood and milk while living in isolation for 6 months.
The men emerge to show off their newly engorged physiques for a winner to be chosen. The winner is then declared as a hero for the rest of his life.
The men competing are selected by their family members. The tribe usually depends on agriculture and they like to drink milk mixed with honey and blood.
