When Executioner Wasps Attack

When Executioner Wasps Attack


From their feeding habits to their tissue-damaging
venom, here are 8 stinging facts about the executioner wasp Number 8 It’s native to South and Central
America The executioner wasp is a large, yellow, and
brown insect that can be found in countries ranging from Mexico to northern Argentina. These insects belong to the order hymenoptera,
which also includes other species of wasps, bees, ants and sawflies. They tend to prefer coastal and humid locations
and are prevalent in tropical forests. This species doesn’t seem to be particularly
territorial, as their hives have often been found near other nests housing Polybia and
Mischocyttarus wasps. Since they prefer tropical weather, the females
hibernate during the winter. They become plumper and fuller during autumn,
in order to withstand this period of stillness. The executioner wasp feeds mainly on caterpillars
and nectar, but will prey on other small insects as well. Today’s video was requested by goated2kplayer9990. If you have any other topics you’d like to
learn about subscribe and let us know in the comments section below. Number 7 It can sting more than once Unlike bees, the executioner wasp and all
other similar species, have no fixed limit of times they might sting their prey and perceived
enemies. Bees must carefully choose when to use their
prime defense mechanism as they end up losing both their stingers and a great portion of
their digestive tract. This leads to the bee perishing soon after
the attack. The wasp, however, merely runs out of venom,
and must simply wait for it to be replenished. They’re capable of portioning the venom
they release in each sting, and their poison gland is in charge of renewing it. There’s nothing that prevents them from
continuing to sting once the venom is drained, though. This makes them far more likely to attack
on demand, and makes them especially dangerous, as they can continue to assault their victims
until they no longer feel threatened or annoyed. The executioner wasp is not a particularly
territorial insect, but it won’t hesitate to attack when it believes its hive’s integrity
is in danger. Before we continue with our list, answer this
question. How many queens are usually found in an executioner
wasp’s nest? Is it: a. More than 10
b. Five
c. One
d. None Let us know what you think in the comments
section below and stay tuned to find out the right answer. Number 6 Their nests are often small and underpopulated Though most wasp nests usually house up to
6000 individuals during the peak of summer, executioner wasps prefer to keep their groups
small and tight-knit. These hives tend to be around 3.5 inches in
diameter and accept groups of 4 to 13 individuals. This particular type of wasp is sociable by
nature, and their nests usually include several horizontal cells where their offspring are
kept apart from the rest of the group. The young are also protected from possible
predators and dangers. In urban areas the executioner wasp’s hive
hangs from the edges of roofs in cities and towns, where they can find protection from
the wind and the rain, while also remaining hidden. In the wild, they’ll choose low branches
of spiky trees instead, with a preference for areas close to swamps. Their hives may be small but executioners
are actually the largest among the neotropical wasp species. Even though it owns an incredibly painful
sting, this insect is surprisingly nonaggressive. That is, of course, unless it’s provoked. Number 5 Only female wasps have stingers There are many differences between male and
female wasps. Not only are the males of the species usually
smaller and thinner, but they actually have no stinger at all! If you’re stung by an executioner wasp,
there’s no doubt that a female was the culprit. These significant differences occur because
the female’s anatomy has evolved in accordance to the extra weight and space required to
carry the eggs, making their abdomen larger and more prominent. The reason they carry a stinger while males
don’t, is related to their reproductive system. The ovipositor allows them to deposit the
eggs to be fertilized and in turn, grants them their greatest defense mechanism. Even though a male wasp can’t actually sting
you, sometimes they’ll mimic this act while defending themselves purely out of instinct. Number 4 It has spiky mandibles The executioner wasp has short yet wide jaws
outside their actual mouths, which they rely on for practical use during their daily chores. Working as tongs, these mandibles allow the
wasp to cut pieces of vegetation, grab small objects or even dig sections of their hives
while constructing them. It also works as a terrifying way of seizing
a tiny insect and killing it, usually by decapitation, in order to get a quick meal. In addition to these appendixes, the executioner
wasp also owns large teeth, with the third one usually being considerably larger than
those of other species, making it a terrifying predator for bugs living near their nests. They are notorious for their long lifespans,
managing to survive for 6 to 18 months, which is far more than other wasp species. Number 3 The pain of being stung by one can
last over 24 hours! In 2015, a YouTube personality known as Coyote
Peterson decided to conduct an experiment to test the physical effects that being stung
by different venomous insects had on the human body. He uploaded several videos to his channel,
comparing different stings and the pain they produced. During the fall of 2018, Peterson decided
to get stung by the Executioner wasp, which he claimed would be the last video he uploaded
from this series. Apparently, not only was the sting incredibly
painful, but the discomfort didn’t subside for almost 36 hours! Not only that but he claimed that the residual
effects, though far milder, lasted for another whole week. The YouTuber stated that this particular sting
had been far more severe than the Japanese giant hornet’s and the bullet ant’s attacks,
which are described as two of the most painful stings in the world. He thus dubbed the executioner as the “king
of the sting”. Number 2 Its sting doesn’t appear in the
Schmidt sting pain index Justin Schmidt was an entomologist born in
the late 1940s, who won a Nobel Prize for physiology back in 2015. He created a sting pain index, in which the
distress caused by hymenopteran attacks was analyzed and classified into four distinct
classes. Schmidt claims to have been stung by the majority
of Hymenoptera insects. Pain level one is the mildest and includes
insects like the southern fire ant and most normal beetles. Level four, on the other side of the index,
is reserved for the most critical levels of pain, only for the worst possible stings. The bullet ant and warrior wasp can be found
at this level. In fact, the bullet ant was the only insect
to be given a rating of 4+. At the time Schmidt created his classification,
the executioner wasp hadn’t been discovered yet, and thus it doesn’t have a real position
in the index. Peterson, who we’ve previously mentioned
on this list, claims it was, without a doubt, the worst sting he’d experienced during
his experiments. So, how many queens can usually be found in
an executioner wasp’s nest? The right
answer was c, just one queen per hive! The worker wasps will not tolerate more than
a single monarch, and if several queen wasps are born in a certain colony, the original
one will murder the would-be-usurpers. This is meant to avoid creating confusion
within the hive. Number 1 Its venom can cause tissue necrosis Not only can the executioner’s sting be
excruciatingly painful for those suffering from their attack, but it can also leave behind
permanent scars. Since it’s a relatively small insect, the
effect its venom has on an adult human being won’t be long-lasting, but the marks it
leaves behind may very well be. Not only will it cause inflammation in the
affected area, which can last up to a few days, but it can also tear the tissue surrounding
it, creating small indentations or holes in the skin. This can produce a permanent scar in an adult. If it can inflict this level of damage on
mammalian skin just imagine the harm its venom would cause a small insect! Thanks for watching! Would you rather try to outrun a group of
bees and risk getting caught by all of them, or allow a single executioner wasp to sting
youw on the nose? Let us know in the comments section below!

MONSTER BUG WARS | Blood on the Forest Floor | S2E2


The bug world is not for the feet-hearted. From the shadows, assassins strike without warning. They’re fast and they’re deadly. You can be impaled, clubbed or torn limb from limb. It’s no exaggeration beside that, this is the insect equivalent of sharp jaws. Death can be instant or drawn out. But it’s coming. (Music) The bug world is full of spies. With a license to kill. In this deadly game of high sticks espionage, any branch or leaf might be. Bug. When a hooded mantis and the Brazilian wandering spider go for the jug-killer. It’s all cloak and dagger. In the jungles of Central America, some of the deadliest predators are masters of the skies. From above or behind, the hooded mantis looks just like a leaf but if you’re a prey and it’s whirring above you, about ready to strike, it looks more like a king cobra, and its bite is just as deadly. Not only is it invisible, the hooded mantis makes other bugs disappear. Like all good spies, the hooded mantis excelles and surveillance. Two huge compound eyes, if the mantis stirious scopic vision and excellent view to a kill. It also deploys two extra long antennae, each lined with tens of thousands of highly sensitive kilo receptors. Free of debris, they pick up the fatest and the transmission. The antennae are consolated detecting chemical and physical information especially when the mantis is sizing up an opponent or prey. This is particularly important when it reaches that stage for the mantis can’t risk taking her eyes off the opponent in case they suddenly launch an attack them their own.

LET’S BUILD ANT NEST!

LET’S BUILD ANT NEST!


As promised today, we are building nest for the ants. In case you need a reminder this is the lasius niger colony, and I have seen comments from people that are telling me that it is in fact not pronounced “ni-ger”, but “ni-jer”. But no, that’s not the case if you are using the Latin pronunciation that it is pronounced “ni-ger” not “ni-jer”, and I know that niger also means something else. But if someone thinks that it is offensive to pronounce the niger just because of that other word and is ridiculous and the fact is It’s not the word that is offensive. It is what you mean behind that word, that is what should offend other people not the word itself. Words should be harmless, thoughts on the other hand that’s the other part. Also I saw a lot of comments of you asking me to do natural Outworld for them, and of course I will do that but the reason why I’m keeping them in this plastic tub for now because I wanted the colony for grow because having a small colony in a big Outworld it’s really not ideal. So first we will make the outworld Brick and then once they actually transfer their colony inside We will make an outworld for them, more natural outworld, and that will be some other video. So the things you need for this type of nest. This will be the first time that I am doing this. So this is not a straight how-to video by now most of my knowledge I already shown in the video so everything new that I’m doing it is just me learning new stuff and at the same time you learn from my success or mistakes or whatever. We all learn together That’s the point so the stuff needed white on brick plexiglass sheet some tubes And that is all for materials, now the tools that you need You need the silicone, silicone that is safe for aquariums That’s the best way for you to find the silicone just make sure that it is good for Aquariums because then that means that it doesn’t contain Fungicide, you see Fungicide fungicide you want this sign or just written aquariums something like that you will need some sandpaper Drill with drill bit that it is big enough for tube actually, it should be the same size and What else? You need scalpel, I mean cutting knife for cutting the plexiglass you can also Cut it with a jigsaw or circular blade. Whatever you have I will also need something like this so I can Trace the knife. A pen so you can draw the nest Scissors for cutting the pipe why tongue is really soft material so for carve it the best thing to use is the flat screwdriver Unfortunately you put different kinds of bits on this screwdriver But unfortunately all of them are in the new space, so I don’t have that but I will use some other stuff Don’t know how that will work, but we will see and that is basically it, so let’s draw the nest first first First I will draw well where my pipe will go I mean tubes also watering holes and from there just Be creative, I guess I don’t know whatever works. I guess so now we need to carve that actually I will extend these tunnels I I just don’t know how easily I will be able to carve it. I actually have the This type of screwdriver you see it is not flathead but It should also work and before making a huge mess. I will do that inside of this tub. Let’s carve! Actually, let’s do a time lapse of that. This was a fun trip you see I didn’t really I don’t know I guess it is fine It’s not a big colony, so it should work. Maybe I should show it on this camera better now you see we have this big chamber and this even bigger chamber or the two entrances and This chamber and this tunnel I don’t know it should work out. Now, I will drill it and then I will need to connect these two tunnels with the drill tunnel hopefully the brick won’t break, brick won’t break. Oh yes, and I figured out that this flat knife for food was the best for carving at least from stuff that I have here Let’s do this. *drill* *Drill* *DRILL* *AND STAHP* Okay. One hole, second hole *drill* *Drill* *DRILL* *DRILL!* *DRILL BABY DRILL!* *AND STAHP* This is really easy to drill. Now I will just drill here to connect the holes and here Yeah, the tunnels are connected See? Have nice tunnels now I also need a watering holes. I will use this a bit narrower drill bit just to measure so I don’t go too far I need to put something to mark it. You don’t want to drill through the brick, so it is good to know how deep you can go There we go we got holes all the holes that we need now I need to sand the surface for that I have this, but I’m not sure if that will work here You’ll see With that done I’m going on my balcony to blow all this dust Because it needs to be super clean before you use the silicone to connect the plexiglass All clean now we need to cut the plexiglass to size, so let’s We will measure that I dropped it. I will use this for straight line Oh,this is super dull look it broke in super weird way This is the easiest way of cutting the plexiglass if you don’t have any other tools the cheapest way You see it just snaps we need to Apply silicone along all these edges, so it will hold the plexiglass and ants won’t be able to crawl outside you need to be aware that silicone is not the ideal of thing ideal way of connecting the Plexiglass because it doesn’t hold it that well. It will work here, but you need to be aware of that You can easily pull it off if you apply enough force so you need to be careful But if you don’t mess with it it will work. Just fine, so just apply a bead of silicone Make sure you do the full circle and that there are no gaps between the silicon remove the protective layer and just Put it on top Press really good So everything sits nice and tightly and just visually check that There aren’t any gaps you see all the silic nature if you will be able to see it on the video but all the silicon is Connected in one big circle there aren’t any gaps that’s important remove all the Excess silicone or you can just leave it to dry and cut it later it is up to you now before we let it dry One last step we will need the tubes so take two tubes Or as many holes you made under on the white tongue and cut it to the size that you like Make sure that you have tubes that you can connect like these two you see I can make the connection So when you want to extend it to another out world or wherever you can always connect the tubes like this That’s also important, so I will just put Small amount of silicone small amount on silicone and smear it across the tube tube one Tube two and now in theory it should just go inside Yes perfect This is why you want your drill bit to match not too big not too small But the same size, and now we just need a bit more silicone to make sure that there is no there are no any gaps There we go all the silicone work is done now We need to let it cure and also I will need to drill holes here for the syringe So just tiny holes that fit my syringe, and that’s it, but I will do that once this is cured Yeah, that will work There now we will let cure for 24 hours, and we are back let’s see how it looks I mean it should look completely the same, but anyway here is the tubes are set The front lid is set now as I said to drill the holes But first just finished feeding the tarantulas, and I have a lot of molts on and aromatisse molted Ascunta golata sling This is if you tell Amira molted that is really cool hmm Which one was this the seriously forgot what species this was Alright so this one is hero, bra He’s Vietnam blue, and this was and this is lost Eudora defeats Alice. How can I forget so quickly? Funny back to the nest to drill the holes now I already prepared small drill bit as I said this will be just for just for the syringe And now to fill the less protective layer with this Now it’s all nice and clear now to attach it with this Outworld first. We need to make holes I mean one hole on this out well Cut the pipe for For the out round and small parts of this pipe that I will use to connect pipe from out rod with the pipe from nest Like that now I will drill hole somewhere here oh I blew it I blew it This was really sloppy look what I’ve done That was such an amateur mistake, but oh well it happens Now you see these two are connected and now I will silicone this part Just to be sure that it is sealed and connected properly. I’ll actually Take this this fresh test you that I made the last last video This will be their water source not really that practical though, maybe I should just leave it in the enclosure And while I’m silicon this we have first end Going through the tube, but he’s going back. He didn’t went too far. Okay now This is silicon and I should fix the tubes then I messed up you see what I did total chaos oh We have second dent, but he’s also going back So let’s now wait for the first ones to go through I wonder how much time will that take or now they are just Figuring out what the hell is that tube and why it’s here, no is this one going in Yes, no Going oh I Guess we need to give them time now, but Everything is set up look at this. I didn’t even notice. I don’t know how far he went, but he’s heading back now Or not. He can’t reload this idea. He’s going back. Oh look another one. What is this? They were inside after all so again soon one will reach the colony. Let’s just wait and see who will it be although I don’t think that we will be able to recognize it later what I wanted to do. What are the white tongue? I’m not sure if I know how to do this. I guess they just pour inside I Guess the tip where is the expedition now I’ll just put the camera here and wait for them No we had one enter here we see it we had one look at it the Explorer first one to explore the new nests Awesome I always forgot to mention the name of this car They are called and like this It was the name suggested by one of the subscribers and all of you pick that one So yeah now the end plant is got its brand-new nest so what I need to do I need to shine bright light here and cover this nest and Eventually they should move everything in this new nest in theory they should move But I noticed that they are really tolerance to light. They don’t really care, so I guess this was all for this sweet Deal we have two new one came inside and the other left funny. So this was all for this video I hope you enjoyed it if you did thumbs it up and comment something if you want to support this channel even more there is A patreon page if you’re new to this channel make sure shows so make sure to subscribe apple every Monday, Wednesday and Friday See you again soon, right?

Millipede vs Centipede!

Millipede vs Centipede!


– I’m Coyote Peterson, welcome
to the desert millipede versus the desert centipede. (upbeat adventure music) Venturing into the
nighttime desert is not for the faint of heart, as this cactus strewn ecosystem is laced with a plethora
of nocturnal predators. Whether it be
scorpions, spiders, that right there
is a black widow, solpugids, or vinegaroons, these arachnids are
certain to be on the prowl, as they use the
cover of darkness to silently hunt for their prey. Look at that. Does that thing not
look like an alien? All arachnids come
equipped with eight legs, and most are also armed
with a set of fangs or a venom injecting stinger. That is the most venomous
species of scorpion in the United States. And he’s on my hand. All right, this makes
me a little bit nervous. I wanna see if I can get
him to just sit still. However, if eight legs, fangs, and stingers aren’t
enough to scare you, Arizona’s Sonoran
Desert is also home to a subphylum of creatures with even more
legs, the myriapods, which consists of
centipedes and millipedes. At the end of the day, both of these animals do
their best to avoid humans, however, today we are going
to capture one of each so we can get them in
front of the cameras for an up close comparison. First, let’s talk about
the desert millipede. Now, millipede
means thousand feet. And each one of these
little body segments has two pairs of legs on it. Now there’s no way
that I’m going to get underneath this creature
and count its legs, but I can tell you from
it crawling across my arm, that there are a ton of
them tickling me right now. It feels like a bunch of
little tiny pieces of Velcro grabbing onto your arm hairs. Despite the name,
there isn’t actually a species of millipede
on the planet that has a thousand feet. On average they have around 400, with the record being 750, more than any other
animal in the world. These myriapods have
very poor eyesight. They have very
simple eyes up front, so they’re really using these
antenna to help them navigate through the environment. And you’ll see as he dances
up in the air like that, he’s basically looking
for what his next move is going to be. If he can’t feel anything
with those antenna, he’s kinda like, woah, woah, I’ve run out of road here. And until he bumps
into something that he can walk on, he’s just gonna stay
put until he can get those front legs planted. Now, the millipede doesn’t
have many predators, and that’s because
these little myriapods are actually poisonous. They do have glands that run
along the side of their body, and if they are really,
really threatened, they will secrete a
nasty orange fluid. And it absolutely stinks. I actually got it all over
my hands the other night. Now, if you get this
poison on your skin, all you need to do
is wash you hands with soap and water, and you’ll be just fine. Now I’m completely
comfortable with millipedes. They don’t bite. If it doesn’t bite, it
can crawl all over me all that it wants. But the centipede is a
whole different ball game. And we’re gonna get that
guy out in a second, and get a close look at that
venomous little desert dweller. The desert millipede is
virtually harmless to humans. And if you encounter
one in the wild, just admire it from
a safe distance. (breathes out) OK, now we’re
on to the part of the episode that I have been dreading. There is no good way to do this. You just have to plop
him out and go for it. All right, here we go, ready? Oh boy. Now he’s kinda like,
oh, I’m on the ground, and I’m on the move. Desert centipedes can
inflict a very painful and venomous bite, so I stress, never
attempt what I am doing. OK, there we go. Now that I have his
head under control, and more importantly,
those fangs, I feel a lot better
about this situation. Oh, look at how creepy that
little desert creature is. Now, what’s really interesting
is that the centipede means hundred feet. Each species of
centipede varies. There’s no way that this
one has a hundred feet, but as they continue to grow, and their body
segments elongate, they grow more legs. Now one major difference between the centipede and the millipede is that the centipede has
a very flattened body. This allows them to fit
into crevices between rocks, and allows them to
glide very quickly over the surface of the desert. Now, these are
voracious predators. They are out here right
now walking the washes and searching through the
rocks for other animals. They will eat bugs,
they will eat scorpions, they will eat lizards, and the ones that
grow to the size of the giant desert centipede, they will even take rodents. But the bite from a
centipede of even this size is gonna put you into
some incredible pain. That’s why I wanna be
as careful as possible while handling this myriapod. One really interesting
feature about all centipedes is that you see
the back end here? This rump? You have these two modified legs on the back end here which have little hooks in them. And this back end is
pretty much a false head. It’s the same color
as the head is. And these two little modified
feet on the back end here have hooks on them. So, let’s say you’re a predator, and you’re coming, and
you’re like, all right, I’m gonna get him, I’m gonna
bite his head right off. These little modified
feet go up in the air, boom, and you get pricked
with those little spikes, throws you off guard, the
centipede spins around, and that’s when you get a bite
from those venomous fangs. This is not a creature that
is very easy to consume. Centipede venom is not
considered deadly to humans, however, the pain has been
said to keep a full grown man on the ground and in
pain for several hours. Moral of the story, steer
clear of centipedes. I hope everybody
enjoyed this comparison. The desert centipede versus
the desert millipede. Both species are native
to the Sonoran Desert. And I’d suggest avoiding both because the
centipede is venomous and the millipede is poisonous. I’m Coyote Peterson. Be brave, stay wild, we’ll see you on
the next adventure. Both of these myriapods
play an important role in the ecosystem. And while they may be creepy and have a gazillion legs
as compared to you and me, always try to remember that they’re going to
use each and every one to run in the
opposite direction. If you thought that
comparison was cool, check out the alligator
snapping turtle versus the common
snapping turtle. And don’t forget subscribe

Brain Freeze Challenge!

Brain Freeze Challenge!


– Oh, that hit me. That’s real bad.
That’s a bad bite. That’s a bad bite!
That was a bad bite. – Brain freeze! AGH! – [Mark] Don’t make me
laugh, it makes it worse! (Mark and Mario laughing) – So cold! (tropical jungle music) (guitar music) – Come with me. He thinks he’s
picking out his lunch. That’s not gonna be his lunch. – [Mark] There it is. Is that it? – [Mario] Yep. Original. Glorious Spam. Look
at that sandwich, it looks delicious,
don’t you think? Not so much. – [Mark] I want my Hawaiian ice. Alright so, easy access. – [Mark] Yep. – Peel it up. And a
little snack for Coyote. – [Mark] Gotta have
his lunch, right? – Yeah, he’s gotta eat the meat before he can have the desert. – [Mark] I agree. – Alright, let’s go. – [Mark] Alright. – Alright guys, so
Hawaii is famous for several different foods, But nothing more famous
than Hawaiian shaved ice. So today, what I’m
gonna do is try to eat as many cups of
shaved ice as I possibly can. Hope you guys are ready for
the brain freeze challenge. Oh look at this guys. Don’t feed the chickens. So right now, Mark and Mario are ordering my first
wave of shaved ice. This is actually
one eating challenge that I’m looking forward to. I absolutely love
Hawaiian shaved ice. – Uh oh. Here it comes. – [Coyote] Oh! The
first two! Here we go! – We have the local. – [Coyote] The local! – Strawberry, blue
vanilla, Li Hing Mui, and snow cap.
– Okay. – And piña colada is pineapple,
coconut, and snow caps. – [Mark] Thank you! – Alright, first
two. Here we go. Wow, those look incredible. – [Mark] Hold on, hold on,
hold on. Wait a second. – [Coyote] What? – [Mark] Those are for us. – [Girl] Here’s the third one. – [Coyote] Oh, this one’s mine. – [Girl] This is the Bomb. – Oh, the Bomb! – [Girl] Cherry on top,
root beer, and snow cap. – [Mark] Nope, nope, nope. Not yet, not yet, not yet. – What do you mean not yet? You gotta get shots
of them first? – [Mark] Mario and
I had our lunch and you haven’t eaten lunch yet. – [Coyote] This is my lunch. – [Mark] No, this is desert. – [Coyote] What? – [Mark] Clearly,
this is a desert. – [Coyote] I’d
consider it lunch. – [Mark] Um, how about that? Classic Hawaiian lunch. You can’t have your desert
until you eat your meat, right? – [Coyote] Spam? Glorious spam? Actually, I did know
that this is one of the most famous
foods here in Hawaii. And look at this little
Spam man inside of the can. You guys really
want me to eat Spam before I eat the shaved ice? – [Mark] Well, we’re
gonna eat these. – Well, what if I
puke from eating this? – I don’t think you’re
gonna puke, man. It’s– – You have to cook
it though, don’t you? – [Mark] No, no.
You can eat it raw. But it’s a Hawaiian delicacy,
just like pineapple. But it tastes like meat. Let’s go ahead and open this up. – Okay. I don’t know about this guys. – [Mark] It’s coming out. Holy!
– Oh my gosh. No, I’m not eating this. – [Mark] Alright well, our
Hawaiian ice is melting. – [Mario] Yeah man, hurry up. – Ugh. – [Mark] Wolf it down, man. We got melting ice here. – Pretty sure you’re
supposed to cook this. – [Mark] Eat, eat, eat. Come on. – Mhmm. – [Mark] I’m gonna sample this. No! No! – [Mario] Let me see,
how does it taste Mark? – Mmm.
– Good? – Pineapple. – This is awfully greasy. It’s like, salty Vaseline. – [Mario] Nope. More for me. – [Mark] Mmm, how
does that taste Mario? – [Mario] Really good. – [Mark] Mhmm. Yeah. (retching) Come on. At this rate, you’re
not getting any ice. – [Mario] Yeah, it’s
gonna melt, so… – Ugh.
(retching) – [Mark] Is it salty? Alright, if you
take one giant bite, I’ll let you have
some Hawaiian ice. – One big bite? – [Mark] One big bite and
I’ll let you start this one. So let’s see, there’s
your reward right there. One massive Hawaiian
sized bite of Spam. Come on. Get it down. (vomiting)
Oh no! (Mark laughing) Mario, he couldn’t eat the spam. What happened Mario? – Coyote just doesn’t
have the stomach. – I puked on the GoPro. – [Mark] Alright. Good
effort, good effort. So you don’t like Spam. – This wasn’t supposed
to be a puke video, guys. – [Mark] This one’s
called the Bomb. – This one is the Bomb. – [Mark] Or Da Bomb. – Mmm. So much better than Spam. Ah, that’s good. Mmm! My chest. – You having a heart attack? – It’s freezing up. – Is this the Spam? (laughs) – Mmm. Anybody getting
brain freeze yet? My chest is getting freeze. – Chest freeze? I think
that’s from the Spam, Mario. – A little too much
sodium for you, buddy. – (laughs) I think he’s
having a sodium heart attack. – How about your teeth?
Do your teeth hurt? – [Mark] No. – Come on. Let’s go. Alright, I think if
I take this down. – [Mark] Brain freeze? – Woo, my teeth! Nah. – It’s just really cold, I’m
not getting a brain freeze yet. – [Coyote] No brain freeze? – Not yet. I think it’s too hot out
here for a brain freeze. – It is hot out here. Really hot. (slurping) Mmm. That’s good. (Mario laughs) Alright. I think we’re
ready for round two. So which is this one? – [Girl] That is
mango, coconut, and– – [Mark] Ooh, that’s a good one. – This is lime, blue
raspberry, and grape. – [Mark] Ooh, that looks
like all you Mario. It’s got the coconut
on top, and everything. Oh, look at mine! – [Girl] This is rainbow. – I get the rainbow. It’s like the Hawaiian rainbow. Look at that. – [Coyote] Awesome. – [Mark] So whoever finishes
their Hawaiian ice first doesn’t have to
eat a bite of Spam. – Okay, I like that game. – [Mark] You like that? – Yeah, ready? One, two, three. Oh this one’s a lot harder. – Oh gosh. – Oh man. – [Mark] It’s really good. – I’m just gonna eat it. – Good tactic. – Oh this is bad. Uh oh. – Got a brain freeze? – Something’s happening. – Now a brain
freeze is caused by all of the arteries
that surround the outside of your
brain contracting. And they send
signals to your brain that this is too cold,
you need to slow down now! Or it’s only gonna get worse. And trust me, it does. I feel it the most
in my teeth though. And in your temples.
Teeth and the temples. – My face. I can barely talk. I don’t enjoy
shaved ice anymore. – How we doing? – [Mark] I’m halfway. – Can’t feel my lips. And actually, the way
to cure brain freeze is to actually just
press your tongue up against the
roof of your mouth, and the warmth from your tongue will warm up all of the
blood vessels and capillaries and will cause them to relax. – Hey guys. Look over
there. Look at that dog. – Hey! No cheating. – That was a dirty trick Mario. – What are you
guys talking about? You’ve got no proof. – Agh! That hit
me. That’s so bad. That was a bad bite.
That’s a bad bite. That was a bad bite. – Brain freeze! Agh! – [Mark] Don’t make me
laugh, it makes it worse. (Mark and Mario laughing) – So cold! I gotta go for
another rush, ready? I gotta power up. – [Mario] Mark won. – [Mark] Look at that.
Put them to shame. Put them to
absolute, Spam shame. – Ugh! – [Mark] You’re just like
turning into a spider monkey. – So cold! – [Mario] I don’t
know what’s happening. (Mark and Mario laughing) (slurping) – [Mark] Mario, you still
have to finish your food. – I can’t. – [Mark] You can do it. – You’re gonna have
to eat Spam, bro. (Mark laughing) Finished. Oh my gosh, my stomach
is freezing. Ugh! – [Mark] You know, I
know a way to warm it up. – [Coyote] No, I
ain’t eating Spam. – [Mark] Oh yeah, you lost. – No I didn’t. He
didn’t finish his. – [Mark] No, only the winner
doesn’t have to eat Spam. The two losers eat Spam. – I ain’t eating no more Spam. – [Mark] You’re gonna have
to eat a little bite of Spam, that was the deal. – All that’s coming back up. – [Mark] A bet’s a bet. – You guys wanna see what a
rainbow waterfall looks like. – [Mark] That counts. Yeah, mhmm. Your turn. – It’s about to be
a rainbow waterfall. – [Mario] Oh no. Here, wash it down with this. – I swallowed. – [Mark] Here, put that in. – Wash it down with that. (Mark laughing) – [Mark] That is a rainbow Spam. – I don’t think I can
eat anymore shaved ice. – Nah, see. This whole trip
we would finish a shoot and Coyote would be like, “let’s go get shaved ice!” Now you got it man. You got all
the shaved ice you can have. – We got one more
round, don’t we? – [Mark] Yep. One more round. – One more round. Alright guys, TV timeout. One more round coming. (upbeat relaxing music) Oooh. – [Girl] Liliko’i and coconut. And then a Caffeine
Monkey, coffee, and banana. – [Mark] Caffeine Monkey? Mario? – Alright, I think
I’m out of this round. It’s you and Coyote. – Yeah, there’s one
more coming out. – No, I think that’s it. – No, no, no. There’s
definitely one more. – I think there’s
one more coming. – These are the organic ones. These have all the fruits. This is like the healthy side. Gotta have these.
– Mmm. Smells good. Smells really good. Mario seems to think that he’s
not going to be getting one, but I think that he
is sorely mistaken. – Sunset, with mango. – [Mark] That one
has the mango, yeah! – Thank you! – Look at that one. – Oh man, my teeth hurt. – This one has caffeine in it. So it’s giving me like
a caffeine rush too. Mario, I wanna
try some of yours. – I think Coyote got
a major brain freeze. – [Mark] I got ice cream
in mine. What’s this? What’s this? I have ice cream. – You have ice cream?
– Mhmm. – That’s going to make
it harder for you to eat. Oh no, I have ice cream too. (dramatic music)
Oh no! This one’s actually really good. – Mmm, oh yeah. Ooh, the ice cream
is really cold. – My head hurts
so bad right now. It’s frozen. – [Mark] Mine’s pretty good. – Mine is too, I’m
trying to enjoy mine. – Mario, you didn’t
finish yours. Get back down there. – [Mario] Look who I’m
sitting next to, man. Maybe we should
just leave him to– – Delicious. – [Mario] It’s messier. – [Mark] Mario… (laughs) – Woo!
(loudly exhales) That’s a lot of
shaved ice, guys. – [Mark] Obviously
we had fun today, but Hawaiian shaved
ice is pretty amazing. – It is. Now, Wishing
Well Hawaiian shaved ice, here on the island of Hawaii
is absolutely phenomenal. If you guys can ever make
it here, try the shaved ice. There are nine different
flavors combinations, three of which are
completely organic. And I can tell you this much, if you’re gonna eat shaved ice, just take your time
and you won’t have to worry about brain freeze. I’m Coyote Peterson. Be brave, stay wild, we’ll
see you on the next location! – [Mark] Can brain
freeze kill you? – No, it can’t. If you thought
eating nine flavors of Hawaiian shaved
ice was entertaining, make sure to go back
and watch the episode where the crew
challenged me to eat one of the world’s stinkiest
fruits, the durian. And don’t forget, subscribe,
so you can join me and the crew on our next location! (bear roar)

WILL IT BITE?! – Black Widow Challenge

WILL IT BITE?! – Black Widow Challenge


– I’m Coyote Peterson and
I’m about to free-handle the Black Widow Spider. Are you ready? – [Cameraman] Let’s do it. – Here we go. One. Two. Three. (adventure music) What’s going on, guys? Who’s ready to
catch some spiders? – I am.
– Yeah? Okay. So, right now, we are on
location in Tucson, Arizona. And as you can see, we’re
right outside the house. You know what lives
on houses in Arizona? Black Widow Spiders. And right now, we’re gonna
use this little container and this stick and
try to find one. Are you ready? – [Cameraman] Okay. – Now, you’re probably
thinking to yourselves, really, Coyote, you’re gonna
find a Black Widow Spider right outside your house? I have seen webs everywhere. You see this? All up here in the
edges of these rocks? Those spider webs are most
likely made by a Black Widow. And what we’re gonna do is
move all around the house, look in the plants,
look in the crevices, look by the gutters,
and I guarantee you, it won’t take me long to find
one of these venomous spiders. Come on, let’s go. Now, I could just start
lifting up rocks like this, looking for them, but
I’m hoping to find one already naturally
hanging out in its web. In this real open rock
structure like this is absolutely perfect for them. – [Cameraman] So, Coyote, why
is it that we’re not like out in the desert looking
for Black Widows? Like, why are we looking
around our house? – Black Widows are
actually drawn to houses. Can you imagine why? What do spiders eat? Other bugs. Bugs are drawn into lights
so where there are lights at night and the bugs
come in, the spiders have the chance for a feast. That’s why I’m looking
right here around the edge of the house. – [Cameraman] And that
would worry a lot of people. – Oh yeah, well people, as
we know, the fear of spiders, arachnophobia, people are
absolutely terrified of spiders and Black Widows specifically
because of the potency of their venom. Look at this. Oh, there’s one! Oh! – [Cameraman] Did you see one? – Totally saw it, there’s
no way you saw it, this is definitely a Black
Widow web right here. It was hanging just down
on the edge of this rock. Hold on. They’re actually really
quick when they dart, yeah, no, it’s back up in there. Yep, 100%, that’s a Black
Widow hole right there. Well, not actually
on the house but just a couple feet away from it. Alright, let’s move down
this way and keep looking. We’re gonna get one. Let’s check out
the fire pit here. – [Cameraman] You were telling
me you had a good feeling about the fire pit. – [Coyote] I see some webs. Oh, I see one right there. – [Cameraman] You got one? – Yep, yep, yep, yep, yep. Oh, it’s going back there. Hold on a second. Oh, there it is, right there. Look at that. Okay, let me get it
into the container. Oh, it’s going towards my thumb. Okay. Let’s see if she’ll
walk right in there. Go, go, go. Yes!
– Ha ha! – There we go. Little bit of air got
her into the container and there you have it. That is a female Black Widow. Exactly what we
were looking for. Sure enough, right
here in the fire pit, it’s kind of a dangerous spot
to be leaving your web there. Wow, okay, well, now I’m
gonna show you why this is an arachnid you just need
to admire from a safe distance and not necessarily
be afraid of. What I’m about to do here is
prove that the Black Widow is not out to bite you. I’m going to actually
free-handle this spider. – [Cameraman] Oh boy. – You guys ready for this? – [Cameraman] You told us
you were gonna try this if we found a Black Widow. – Well I didn’t tell you at
the beginning of the episode, I know I told you and
I know I told Mario and I said to really
disprove that the Black Widow is just out there to bite
you, I’m going to let it walk on my hands and on my
arms and, hopefully, not take a bite. Now, you can see she’s just
laying on the bottom there, actually playing dead,
rolled up in a little ball. That is a defense
mechanism, especially when there’s nowhere to escape to. I will note that there is
no one in the past 10 years that has died from the
bite of a Black Widow. The bite is very painful, it
can cause stomach cramping, it can cause vomiting,
it can cause dry mouth, lot of pain for several hours
so I do not want to be bitten. Either way, I will
admit that I am nervous, I do not have
arachnophobia, which we know is the fear of spiders,
but when you’re looking at the Widow, it definitely
gets your heart racing. I’m Coyote Peterson and
I’m about to free-handle the Black Widow Spider. Are you ready? – [Cameraman] Let’s do it. – Here we go. One. Two. Three. (intense music) Oh my. Went right on to the
edge of my finger. Okay now she’s
going down my arm. She’s actually spun a
little thread of web, like she’s becoming
secured to me. Oh, I thought she
was about to bite. Now, one thing most
people don’t realize about the Black Widow Spider
is that if it does inflict a bite, that bite is
oftentimes just a warning and they aren’t actually
injecting as much venom as they would into,
say, a prey item. They’re not looking to
kill you as a human, they’re simply looking
to startle you so that they can ultimately get away. Can you see that? She is just tangling
my arms up with web. It’s almost invisible to
the eye but I can feel it all over me, tangling me up. Kinda makes me a bit
nervous, I’m getting covered in spiderweb right now. Let me actually get her
back onto the stick. Oh, oh, oh. – [Cameraman] That
looks dangerous. – I scared her there. I’m gonna get her
on the stick here. I gotta get some of this
webbing off of my arm. There you go. It’s really sticky
and every single time that I move my arm, I
can feel that web pulling and pulling her and what
I’m afraid of is that she’s gonna get startled
and then inflicted a bite. Now this is a female. Females are larger than
the males and they have that quintessential red
hourglass shape on the abdomen. That is the easiest way to
identify one of these spiders. You know she’s very
dark in coloration as that big, bulbous abdomen. – [Cameraman] Do you
think she’s calm enough to go back on your hand? – The question is
am I calm enough to let her get back on my hand? Yeah, let’s see. – [Cameraman] So why is
the spider not biting you? – The spider’s not biting
me because I’m not applying any pressure to its body,
ooh, now I can’t see her, where is she? – On your thumb.
– Going round that side. And, as long as I
don’t apply pressure, hopefully she will stay calm
and I will not be bitten. Alright, she feels very
comfortable right there on the edge of my thumb, I’m going to keep my
hand incredibly still. You may notice that
the tone of my voice has slightly changed. That is because she is right
on the edge of my thumb. Can you see that? – [Cameraman] Mm-hmm. – She feels hidden right
there, she’s comfortable, she’s in the crevice of my
thumb and, without me talking real loudly next to
her, she’s just thinking okay, I’m hidden, I was
captured from my web. Don’t worry, sweetie, we’re
gonna put you right back in the web, nothing to fear. Now, I would never
recommend that you go out and try to pick
up a Black Widow. If you see a Black Widow
outside of your house, you do not need to
be afraid of it. Remember, these arachnids
are eating the pest insects that are out there. Could be mosquitoes, could
be moths, whatever it is the spider has no
interest in biting you. Oftentimes the way a bite
happens is when somebody grabs onto the spider
accidentally and is bitten. Now, let’s say you walk through
the web of a Black Widow and you find it on your
person, do not panic. The best thing to do
is to just remain calm, try to pick up a stick,
something like this, let the spider
crawl onto the stick and then place it back
into the environment. I’m sure a lot of you out
there who have arachnophobia are watching me handle
this spider right now and you’re just
cringing in your seats. And I will not lie, my
mouth is getting dry and I am trying my best to
not shake my hand right now, despite the fact that
I’m incredibly nervous. I’m gonna very
slowly turn my hand. There you go, sweetie. Don’t move. Look at that. That is one of the
most venomous spiders in the United States. And it is just gently
clutched right there on the edge of my hand. I would definitely say that
this was pretty intense. Free-handling the one and
only Black Widow Spider. I’m Coyote Peterson. Be brave, stay wild, we’ll see you on
the next location. I said it before and
I can’t say it enough. Never attempt to
free-handle a Black Widow. Like all spiders,
they’re venomous and a bite from this
specific species is incredibly painful. If you see a Black Widow
hanging out in a web near your residence, simply
admire it from a safe distance and you will be just fine. Okay, after getting
the macro shots, the most important part:
letting the spider back into its web. You ready?
– Yep. (creepy music) – [Coyote] If you though
handling the Black Widow was intense, make sure to go
back and watch the episode where I free-handled the
notorious Bark Scorpion. And don’t forget, subscribe so
you can join me and the crew on our next location. (bear growls)

Zombie Juice!

Zombie Juice!


(ominous music) (growling) (growling) – Zombies! (upbeat music) (energetic music) – [Camera Man]
Coyote, whatcha doing? – [Coyote] Huh? – [Camera Man] Whatcha doing? – Ah, I saw a little
zebra tail lizard went right into that hole. And I thought I could flush
it out from this side. But it’s definitely buried underneath the prickly
pear cactus right now. – [Camera Man] You lost him huh? – (growls) I can’t
catch ’em all. But you know what,
check this out. This actually gives
me a really cool idea. I’m surrounded by prickly
pear cactus right now. And Mark, do you know
what that is, right there? – [Mark] Yeah, it’s
a prickle pear. – Yeah, like prickly
pear, like an apple, it’s the fruit. But these ones– – [Mark] Is it, wait, hold on. First of all is it prickle
pear or prickly pear? – It is prickly pear and
it’s called a prickly pear because all over the fruits,
especially these ones, which aren’t fully ripe, have
these little fibrous hairs that are called glochids. They easily brush off the cactus and they can end
up in your skin. That’s why if you bump
into a prickly pear you’re gonna be in
pain for a long time, because you can’t see these
little stickers very well but they are very irritating. These fruits right
here are really ripe, and actually this is
a great desert snack. You wanna try some
prickly pear fruit? – [Mark] I mean I
just had breakfast, but I could have a little more. – Oh come on, you
know you want to. Hold on, let me get out
my pocket knife here. Now the ones that are all
the way ripe, like this, don’t usually have, ah,
as many glochids on them. But I’m already starting
to get them into my finger. That’s what I didn’t
want to happen. I’m gonna cut it open. You ready?
– Yep, go for it. – [Coyote] Here we go. Oh yeah, that is nice and ripe. Wow, look at that. – [Mark] It kinda
looks like beet. – [Coyote] It does look
like a beet, doesn’t it? Let me scoop some
of this out here. – [Mark] That’s the good stuff. – That is the
stuff we are after. Oh yeah. Um, that is sweet. Okay ready, here we go. First bite. This is like breakfast
for me here in the desert. Um. – [Mark] What’s that taste like? – Wow, that is good. (exhales seeds) That’s kinda how
you have to eat it. You take a scoop out
with like a pocket knife. You can also dig it
out with your fingers. You can eat the seeds,
they’re good fiber, but really what we’re after
right here is the juice. So you kinda have to suck
all the juice in the fruit out from around the seeds. And then– – [Mark] You got a
little on your nose. – Do I? (exhales seeds) You can shoot ’em
like little pellets, which is kinda cool. You wanna try it? – [Mark] Uh sure, yeah,
never had it, but. – Give this a go. (exclaims) I’m getting
the spines in my finger. – Yeah, I’ll have
mine without spines. – Yeah, no spines for you. There you go. Now it’s gonna turn
your fingers purple, but don’t worry. Honestly, it looks like it’s
gonna stain you, but it won’t. – [Mark] It’s very
seedy looking. Not so sure about this. – Yeah trust me, it’s good. It is so sweet and delicious. Chance, film him eating this. Let’s get his reaction. – It’s kinda like a. – [Coyote] Yeah,
don’t pop a filling. – Yeah, it’s for real. It’s like a super
seedy blackberry that’s not quite as sweet. Still tastes good. – It’s good right? Animals like javelinas
and desert tortoise love eating these. But us as humans, we use them
for multiple different foods. You can make jellies,
you can make candy, you can actually cake. But my personal favorite
is prickly pear juice. And there’s a real
simple way to make juice, right here without getting
the seeds in your mouth. You ready for this? – [Mark] What do you
do, bash ’em with rocks? – You could bash ’em with rocks, but then it’s gonna
make a huge mess. What I’m actually
gonna do I use a sock to make a juicer. – [Mark] Oh, so you
have like an extra pair in your pack there? – No, I actually am
going to take the sock right off of my foot. – [Mark] For real? – Oh yeah. This wigwam sock right
here is about to become my desert juicer. So the reason I’m using the sock is because it will help
filter out the seeds and the little spines. In you go. Very good. Getting another one. Oh they’re so ripe! Wow, look at that. That is a sock full
of prickly pear fruit. Now I could just
(growls) chomp into that like a bulldog, but what
I’m actually gonna do is bash all these fruits apart to get them started with a rock. Oh, there’s a good one, okay. Come here you. Oh this is perfect. Ow. One, two, squish. (dramatic music)
Oh yeah! Oh man. Oh wow, this is going
to be delicious. This is what we call
desert sock punch. Now what I wanna do is
kinda twist the sock down and force the
fruit and the juice out of the tip of the sock. Alright, you ready? (choir vocalizing dramatically) Oh, oh that is good. Whoo! Oh freshly squeezed
prickly pear juice. Delicious! I definitely taste
my feet in there. Um. It’s kinda the aftertaste. At first it’s
delicious and sweet. And then you’re like
what’s that extra tinge? Ew, sweaty boot foot. Okay, ready? (Mark groaning) Oh, you want a sip? – [Mark] No! – Alright, ready. Oh look at that, it’s
just dripping out now. – [Mark] Go for it. – Nothing is more refreshing
than freshly squeezed prickly pear juice on a
Sonoran Desert morning. Chance, would you like some? Oh come on. Mark, how about you? Dude, I’ll squeeze it right
into your mouth for ya, look at that. Oh, you guys sure? Why not? – [Mark] Dude, that sock’s
been on your foot all morning. Nope. – That’s fair to say. The sock, has been on
my foot for a while. – [Mark] I don’t even
know if I would do it with my own sock. I’ll take your word for it. It looks, it looks purple. – Well, and here’s the trick. You know what my mouth
is not full of right now? Spines. There are no
glochids in my mouth. There are no seeds. I was rather careless in how
I squeezed this juice out and I actually did
that on purpose. I probably could have
done a better job of not getting it
all over my clothes and I know you’re saying
to yourselves right now, Coyote, your tan colored shirt that helps you blend in
to the desert environment has been dyed purple. You look like a
ravenous vampire. Actually, one
common misconception is that the prickly
pear fruit stains. All I need to do is
take this shirt inside, throw it in the washing
machine, and it’s gonna come out like it was brand new. Believe it or not. And all this dye is gonna
wash right outta my hands with just a little
soap and water. Um, but it is so good. Little bit more. (growls) I’m gonna head inside right now. Jump in the shower
and throw these guys into the washing machine. And the next time you
see me in this outfit, it’s gonna be totally free
of prickly pear juice. I’m Coyote Peterson, be brave. Stay wild. We’ll see ya on
the next location. Whoo, what a breakfast! If you enjoyed this On Location, make sure to go back and
watch Coconut Breakfast with everyone’s
favorite iguana, Wilson. And don’t forget, subscribe, so you can join me and the crew on our next location. Alright guys, this is
it, the moment of truth. Are my clothes still
stained after being washed and sun dried in the desert? Look at that, not a single stain from the prickly pear juice. Adventure shirt, good to go. Well I guess we’ve proven it, that the prickly pear juice
does not stain your clothes. See ya on the next location. (growling)

Will I Get Worms? – Eating Parasites

Will I Get Worms? – Eating Parasites


– [Coyote] So to earn my
white coat, I must eat… – [Guest] One of
these wax worms. – Peep, peep, peep!
Peep, peep, peep! – Peep! Peep! – [Coyote] Like a
robin! I can’t hear you! (safari adventure music) – Whoo! The elevator
almost ate me. It’s been a while since
I’ve been in college. Today, we’re at The
University of Arizona. And we’re going to be getting
up close with some nematodes, but first, we need to find
Dr. Stock, in Room 720. Follow me, guys. – [Mark] So just, walk
into the first open lab you see, is kind
of the play here. – We’re definitely
in the right spot. You got biology and worms
up there on the tack board. Ah! There it is. Room 720. – What’s up guys? – Who let this guy in? – [Mark] I was gonna
say, “Who let Mario in?” – Guys, I am a
trained scientist. – All right here, let’s
see what you’ve been doing. What have you been up to? – Who let you in here
without any permission? – What have you
been up to in here? – You weren’t touching
anything, were you? – No, don’t touch that! – Oh, sorry. – I’m conducting a few
experiments, of my own. Yeah. – We’re looking for Dr.
Stock. Have you seen her? – [Mark] I don’t know.
Maybe, around that corner? – Oh, Dr. Stock!
Paging Dr. Stock. Coyote’s here. – What is all this noise? – There you are! – Nice to meet you. – Nice to meet you, too. You look very official
with the lab coat, and some, I’m assuming, some
important papers of some sort. – Oh, just looking at the
things that I need to pay for, bills of lab equipment
and supplies. – Kind of important, I guess. So, as I understand it,
we’re going to be getting up close with nematodes today. – That’s right and, does
people know what nematodes are? – Yeah, they’re like
a little amphibian. About, about little
warts, real cute, little buggy eyes, right, and
they eep, got that tongue? – [Mark] What? No toads? – Nematodes are roundworms. – Ugh! Roundworms?
Like a parasite? – Like a parasite. Yup. – [Mark] I signed up for toads. – I heard toads, and I
was like, “I love toads.” – Have no fear, because the
ones that you are going to see in my lab are actually
not that gross looking. I actually find them
very cute, interesting. – I’ll be the judge of that. Get my arm up in there.
Oh, now I feel official! How do I look guys? – [Mark] You actually
look more intelligent, believe it or not. – Yes, I have intelligent
things to say. It’s a very astute day
for Coyote Peterson, because we’re going to be
learning about nematodes, which are not amphibians at all, but are actually a parasite. I thought they were just
cute little amphibians. Okay! Let’s get into this. Well, what are we doing today? – Well you are going
to get that actually, bugs get sick too, and one
of the diseases that bugs… – Wait wait wait
wait wait wait wait. Did you say bugs get sick, too? As in insects can get sick? – Yes, so that’s my
profession. I am a bug doctor. – We’ll this is pretty cool. Now, this is one of
the first episodes we’ve ever filmed in
a situation like this, where we’re in a lab. We’re working with microscopes. And I see you’ve
got all these little test beakers and
pipettes out here. So, let’s kind of follow
what it is that you do, and we’re gonna learn
something cool today. – [Mark] Turn it
over to Dr. Stock. Why don’t you tell us about
what we’re looking at here. – Well, yeah. So, as
I mentioned before, I work with insect
diseases with nematodes and the nematodes that
I study are actually very tiny little creatures. So this flask that has
water, and if you can see the flakes that are shaking
inside, those are the nematodes. – Those are nematodes? – Yes. Those are insect
parasitic nematodes. – I see they kind of do look
like little squiggly lines. To me, this just looks
like bad tap water. – Yeah, yeah. And you
shouldn’t drink it actually. – Oh, I was gonna say,
“Can I taste it? Bad idea?” – Well, I wouldn’t
recommend that. – Okay. If the doctor says
don’t drink it, don’t drink it. – I can show you actually
other kinds of nematodes. – Oh, there’s different
kinds of nematodes. Wow! So that…that’s
a nematode. – Yeah, and you know
where it came from? – A poop? – Well, it came from
a lake in Wisconsin, and actually, that’s
a nematode that was parasitizing an immature
stasis of a dragonfly. – Wow, that came
out of a dragonfly? Now how did you extract
it from the dragonfly? – It came out on it’s own. – That’s crazy looking.
Can you actually even see that on your camera? So, that’s nothing for us
as humans to be afraid of, but if you are a
dragonfly larva, that’s like your worst
nightmare. Okay. All right. – [Mark] Well, hey. I noticed
there’s some plants down here. Are you working with
some plant research? – Yes, well actually,
it’s all connected. So, we are studying
nematodes that parasitize insects that are
pests doing more than crops and we… – Okay. Oh! Is that
a big caterpillar? – Yeah. That’s a
big caterpillar. – Wow! – I’ll get it out for you. – [Mark] Oh, wow. It is a big
caterpillar. That’s beautiful. – [Coyote] What kind
of caterpillar is that? It doesn’t bite does it? – No, it’s a Tobacco Hornworm. – So this is a pest
insect, despite that fact that it’s really beautiful. – Yes, they are very voracious. They could feed on
this plant, if we, if I put that caterpillar
on this plant, tomorrow morning,
I have no leaves. – Really? Got it! – Yup. That’s good. So, where does everything start? Right? In my research? – In a tummy? – No. In the soil. – Oh, in the soil!
Doesn’t all life come from the
belly of something? – Actually, I have to say that, thanks to these worms, I’ve
traveled around the world. And I’ve been all over
the world sampling… – What? For worms? – For these nematodes. – Wow! Those worms
are gross looking. What are those? Maggots? – No actually, this
is our guinea pig. And also, I use them
as baits to get the nematodes that are
living in the soil. – That’s nematode bait? – Yeah. So, when I go
to the field and collect dirt samples, I bring
them to the lab, then I put them in
containers like this. I put all these waxworms,
which actually are a pest problem in beehives, because if they get
into the beehives, they will feed on all the
wax in the comb of the hive, and it will destroy the comb. – So that’s where they
get the name, “Waxworm?” – Yeah, yeah. – Makes sense. – So, what I do, I
leave this dirt sitting in another room that
I have in my lab, for a week, and after
that, the magic happens. So, what I get is all these
infected caterpillars. – Those are dead? Woah! Ugh! – [Mark] What happened? – Don’t! Just
don’t! That stinks! – [Mark] Oh! I smell
it! It just hit me! Keep ’em back! I’ve
got a zoom lens. – Oh my gosh! That is putrid! I almost threw up my burrito into your little nematode
waxworm pile there. – In spite of that
smell, actually, there’s no putrefaction
here because actually the nematodes that we study, have inside their
tummies, bacteria, and this is the bacteria that
comes out from the nematodes. – So is that some
valuable research, right there, in that container? – Yes, because
actually, the nematodes, what they do, they
vector the bacteria, who are actually the
true insect killers. So, the bacteria is the
one that kills the insects, – And the bacteria is
coming from the nematode? – Yes. – Okay. So, the nematode
is the distributor of the bacteria that
ends up in the waxworm. – Yes, exactly. – I’m learning here. – And I hope you can
capture this with a camera. So, you have your
dead insects there. – Let me plug my nose and
get down there real close. – [Mark] Oh, yeah.
I see something. – [Coyote] Oh my gosh! That’s
like a deflating wax worm. – [Dr. Stock] Those are
the worms coming out. – [Mark] Why don’t we take
a look under the microscope? Because I think
everyone would really like to see these
worms in action. – Oh, yeah! So, so we can put
these under the microscope, and get an up close look
at these little wigglers. – We can go to my
other lab where we have the microscopes. The microscope! – Dr. Stock, I’m
light-headed here. All those funky smells. Whoo! – So, I have the worms here,
actually ready for you. – So, what’s gonna
happen is, I’m gonna look inside these little eye sockets, and the other camera is
gonna point at the screen, so you guys can see what
it is that I am seeing. Are you ready? – [Mark] Yup. – Here we go. Get that shot
on screen there, Mario. Oh, boy. That is one squiggly worm party! Are you serious? So,
this is what’s going on inside of those waxworms? – Yes, exactly. – And how many of
these are inside a waxworm at any given time? – [Dr. Stock]
Hundreds of thousands. – Hundreds of thousands? – [Mark] Hundreds of thousands? – [Dr. Stock]
Hundreds of thousands. – Wow. That is really cool. Okay, so what I wanna
do now, is I’m gonna crouch down here, and
we’re gonna look at this actually on the screen, so
that I can talk to you guys while we’re looking at this. Now, are we just seeing,
we’re just seeing the silhouettes of them, right? – Yeah, actually, these are
the ones that are coming out from the insects, and we call
them, infected juveniles. – Okay. So these are
opportunistic predators looking for a host, that
they can then infect. They’ll grow inside. And
then, how do they reproduce? Do they reproduce
inside of the waxworms? – So, yes, they will
reproduce in the waxworm or any other insect that
they think is suitable for them, but actually, the nematodes go into
the insect blood, and that sends a signal to the nematodes to
start opening their mouths or anuses, and the
bacteria start coming down. And so, the bacteria
are either defecated, or regurgitated,
and the bacteria throw toxins that kill the
insect, and the insect dies. Now, when the insect
dies, it’s actually the most important
part, because now, there’s all that
food supply for the nematodes to start
growing and multiplying. – Wow! Well, that’s pretty cool. I wish I had a
microscope like this. So, what else can
we take a look at? You have any other worm
species or parasites? – Yeah, I can show you
some human parasites that I use for my class. – Ooh! Human parasites! Let’s check that out. All right, you lead the way! – All right, back
in the dirty lab, and okay, somebody already
placed them on the table. I’m guessing, those are
the human parasites. – [Mark] Whatever gave it away? – Yeah, well I wasn’t
actually even looking at that. I was just looking at
that… This is what I always imagined would
crawl out of my mouth if I had a tapeworm, and I put the
bowl of milk in front of me. Are those tapeworms? – No, actually
these are nematodes. – Those are also nematodes? Giant, super-sized ones! – Yeah, they’re actually is
called Ascaris Lumbricoides. – Whoa, that’s complex
for something that just straight-up can be labeled,
“disgusting,” in my opinion. But you love these
things, don’t you? – Oh, I do. I love this. – This is fascinating to you? How would you know as a human, if you have one of these
inside of your organs? – You probably would have
many of them in your stomach. – No, no, no. Dr.
Stock, there is no way that I have any of
these inside me. – Yeah. And you would
look almost, like, pregnant with a
big swollen belly. – I work on my
physique a little bit. Do you think that I
might have some of those inside of me, though? – Oh, no. I don’t think so. – No. Whoo! In the clear. So, Dr. Stock, there
is a rhyme and a reason behind all the science,
and all the work you’re doing with
these incredibly
fascinating nematodes. Can you sum that up
for us? Real quick. – Yeah. So, actually
early, as I mentioned in the very beginning,
we are trying to develop alternatives
to pest management. – So, how does a nematode then, help you control
the pest population? – Well, nematodes actually are
important insect parasites. If they are mass-produced
and formulated, they can be used
to our advantage. – Okay, so basically
then, the nematodes can help control
populations of pest insects like these caterpillars, that
are just decimating crops. And in a sense,
they’re becoming the pest control of the future. – Exactly. And
actually, even further, they are safe to the
environment and to us. – That is so cool.
Well, this is definitely one of the most complex
and scientific episodes I think we have ever filmed. I learned so much
today about nematodes. Dr. Stock, thank you so much
for having us into the lab. – My pleasure. It’s
been wonderful. – Whew! That was crazy. – [Mark] Come one.
We’re not done yet. – What do you mean,
we’re not done? I was gonna give an outro. – [Mark] You didn’t
have your snack. And you know, the title of this
video, “Eating a Parasite.” – Oh, gosh. I was kinda hoping you guys would
forget about that! – I don’t think you
can leave this lab… – No, no, but I can
say, wait a minute, you can’t leave. I
have a present for you. – What’s the present? – The waxworm. – [Mark] Oh, which
is a parasite. So… – Well, a parasite host. – Hey, if it’s between
eating one of these, or a waxworm, I don’t know man. I think I’d go for the waxworm. – Give me the
waxworm. All right. – I would say so.
Actually, every lab member, to become a lab member,
needs to have one waxworm. – So, to earn my white
coat, I must eat… – One of these waxworms. A great source of protein. – And I’m just gonna
dump this whole thing of waxworms in my
mouth and chew it up? – Oh, no. I can
pick one for you. – Oh, just one? – Just one little snacky. – That’s a lot better. – That’s all I ask,
only one caterpillar. – Oh, you had to pick
the big squisher! – You can become the
official lab member. So, instead of chopsticks,
with these forceps. – Now, how do I know there’s
no nematodes in there? – I can guarantee that. – I’m trusting you here. Wait, I don’t know, guys,
I might puke on this. You know it happens. – Will this help? – Oh, yeah, that’ll do it. That’s 2000 milliliters. That’s probably what
I got in me right now. All right, I’m gonna hand
this little one back to you. – And I can give you that one. – [Mark] Oh! Doctors
have to feed you. – Yeah, yeah. I can help. – [Mark] Like a
little baby bird. – Just to make sure. – [Mark] Can you make a
little squawking sound? Like you’re hungry? – Ugh. Okay. – Peep, peep, peep!
Peep, peep, peep! – Ugh! – Ugh! – [Mark] What’s it taste like? – Ugh, like a bad bean. – [Mark] A bad bean? – Ugh! I’m holding it… – I’ll give you some help. – I swallowed it! – [Mark] You did it? – I swallowed it. – [Mark] You did it. – I swallowed it,
and I didn’t puke. Oh my gosh! You guys wanna try? You wanna join the club? Come on, man. – This might get me to puke. – I don’t think so. – We have the bucket,
we have the worms. – If it didn’t make me puke,
it’s not gonna make you puke. – This is called, “When
the tables have turned.” – Yeah, well look at
me! I’m doing just fine. I ate the big one,
too. Big squisher! – And he’s all energized. – Yeah. Actually, I feel
really good about myself. This is the first
time I’ve never puked from eating something. – I’m impressed. – I’ve puked from eating fruit. These are worms! – That’s definitely
the grossest thing I’ve ever seen you eat. – [Mario] That’s
pretty impressive. – [Coyote] That
one’s not big enough. Get him that big one in
the corner. Ooh, yeah! – What did I do to this guy? – That’s Chunky Charlie! Yeah. All right. Now, make
those bird noises, Mark. – [Mario] Yeah, come on, Mark. – [Coyote] Tweet, tweet!
Come on, little baby bird. – Peep, peep. – Like a robin,
I can’t hear you! No, no, no! No, no. Chew it. – I had to swallow real quick. It made my eyes water. – Did you even chew it? – It popped. It went, “Plew!” – The popping is the worst part. You expect there to be
a real pungent taste, but there isn’t. It actually tastes like a bean. – Okay. Give me my lab coat. – That’s the first time
I’ve ever eaten a bug. – Oh, man. That was… – I wish I could say
that no bugs were injured in the
making of this video, but unfortunately a couple
of them have been eaten. All right, Mario! I don’t think you’re gonna
escape this one, buddy. – I ate a big lunch
and breakfast. – You know you can
always top off a burrito with a little waxworm, buddy. It’s the new dessert. – Where’s your lab coat, Mario? (Dr. Stock laughs) – [Coyote] And, you
know the drill, buddy. You’ve seen us both do it. We’re gonna need some
good bird noises. What bird species
would you like to be? – A cuckoo. – Okay! Let’s hear what a
baby cuckoo sounds like, ’cause it’s dinner time! Mama bird has come back with a fresh pile of waxworms. – I’ll do my little wings? – Yeah, that’s cool. Well, I can’t hear the
sounds. Coo, coo, coo! – Ew! Ew, it popped. – It’s the food of the future. – Well, I’m in the
present right now. And in the present, I
had a burrito, but…nah. You know what? It
wasn’t that bad. It wasn’t that bad. – Somebody get this
man a lab coat! – Oh my gosh. I’m in trouble. Do I have enough lab coats? – Well, I sure hope so. – Well, let’s see. I’ll
give you my lab coat. – Ey! What a good Mama Bird! All right. Good job, guys! – Look at that. – High fives up here. We have all successfully
eaten waxworms. Now, my stomach
feels really funky, so, I’m go ahead
and cut this camera, and place it over here. Wow! I am incredibly
proud of us, guys. We have all eaten waxworms, and we are now all
officially doctors. Dr. Laivins, Dr. Aldecoa. – Wait. We’re doctors? – Yeah. That’s what
the lab coat means. – I don’t think
that’s how it works. – Oh, no. I’m definitely
putting, “Dr. Coyote Peterson,” in front of everything now. Dr. Stock, thank you
so much for having us into the lab today. This was enlightening. I’m Coyote Peterson. Be brave. Stay wild. We’ll see you on
the next location. (whimsical music) Hey, Coyote Pack! I’ve got some great news. We’re doing two live
shows in Australia: one in Melbourne,
and one in Sydney. The tickets are on sale now. And for everyone in
the United States: get excited, because
a West Coast Tour is coming in early 2018. And don’t forget, subscribe, so you can join me and the crew on our next big adventure. I’m Coyote Peterson. Be Brave! (audience cheers)
