These Pygmy kids will have a five-month training and then they will have to survive on their own and feed their families.  ItÕs like when they drop off the marines in some remote jungle with three matches and a forkÑbut this is not a weekÕs trainingÑit is for the rest of their lives. These kids pull a little fishing hook from their skirts, cut a fishing pole and a vine for fishing line and then catch three or four small fish that they eat whole for their one meal of the day.
