Now these are real tree climbers!!
Facing angry bees 40 metres high and unattached for honey - Human Planet: Jungles, preview - BBC One
Tete climbs up a 40 metre tree, balances on a precarious branch and endures being stung by an angry swarm of bees to reach the most sought after of jungle foods -- honey.
The climbing notches are a bit of a bummer though.
"I love science and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awe by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and revigorate it." by Robert M. Sapolsky

THe title was so similar in imagined content to a segment recently being aired on Discovery channel that I had to check this one out.
There is a current ongoing series called Wild Russia, that investigates heretofore unexplored areas of Russia, where wilderness like settings abound in the largest unexplored landmass in the world...one of the segments portrayed the efforts of bears to obtain honey, found in trees (albeit humans were involved in this particular segment).
THe point is more towards recommending the program to you, others, as well worth viewing if you've the time or the ability to 'save' the show for later viewing.
