In South Africa we had fellows like this. If I am correct, they are covered with a coating of sticky clay. They have to survive on their own completely until the clay wears off. No one is allowed to feed them or help them in any way. They have to do it all themselves. They aren't allowed to wash it of. When they have Completed this survival time they are then considerd to be adults. It is sort of a right of passage. It is a tribal thing.
