The mysterious tribe and their cows roam on the border between Kenya and Somalia. This is the only nation in the world, which practices a very unusual tradition: their children eat cows' menstrual matter until they get married. The Bubals believe that the licking of cow's vagina makes would-be warriors strong and courageous. Italian scientists have recently discovered that the menstrual matter of cows is a source of such vitamins as B6, B12, E and D. In addition, it makes up the deficiency of iron, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium and potassium. That is why, scientists think, cows protect the tribe from the most horrible disease of the region - anemia (the lack of haemoglobin).

The most interesting thing happens afterwards, though. Hormone changes become extremely conspicuous with all males of the African tribe, after they reach puberty: their testicles grow up to 70-80 centimeters in diameter. The "miracle of nature" happens on account of the untraditional nourishment that tribal individuals practice in their adolescence. The hormone-rich menstrual secretion of the cattle causes irreversible hormone changes with humans. It is noteworthy, that such giant testicles do not exert any negative influence on the reproductive function, although they do cause many other obvious problems.

And this is just weird:

Tourists from all over the world are ready to pay huge money to take a look at giant testicles.

Has anybody heard of any other "unusual" tribal practices such as this?

I would say that if you are on your hands and knees preparing to lick a cow are already pretty strong and courageous. I just lost my appetite.

You just got taken in by the Russian version of a humor magazine similar to "The Onion."

The men in the picture are suffering from a tropical parasite that causes a condition called "elephantiasis."

There's no such tribe (the name means "buffalo" in Latin), and excess estrogen causes ATROPHY (shrinking) of the male genitals. And there's not enough estrogen in those cow parts to cause much of anything to happen, even if it was your exclusive diet.
