The pygmy canopy honey. One, two, three trees are harvested in a day. The honey-hunters devour the honey during the harvest as though to pay themselves for the effort expended. At the base of the tree, the honey is shared and the rest is brought back to the camp for the women and children. The brood cell is eaten by the men. It's man's food. Honey is important in the Likouala and for the N’Bensele clan and the big season for honey and larvae is in August and September. Then, everyone is in the forest and and no one is left in the village. Sangha, Congo
