Can You Feel It? with Chrissy Teigen


-Guys, here’s how this works. We’re going to have a number
of mystery objects brought out in front of us, and our job is to guess
what each one is. The catch is that we have
to figure out by touch alone. [ Laughter ] Honestly, I — really,
I said it’s a fun game, but I really don’t mean that. -Have there ever been actual
dangerous things in there? -Yeah.
-Okay. Okay. -There’s been one
or two dangerous things. -Okay.
[ Laughter ] -Usually towards the end,
though, right? -Oh, great. Whatever. I’m down. I like to touch. -Since I’m the host,
I’m going to go first. -Okay.
-All right. Let’s get our first object.
All right. And you can go in front,
if you want. And just —
-Okay. -I’ll have 30 seconds
to identify what this is. [ Laughter ] Okay. Is it — -So there are scary ones,
apparently. Okay. [ Laughter ] -I’m going to freak out.
I’m freaking out. I swear to you, this is
not my game at all, man. I’m like — [ Screaming ] Don’t make noise. Is it
going to move or something? I swear —
-Come in through the side. -This is the last time
I’m playing this game ever. I just really don’t
like this at all. Oh!
-You’re fine! -Oh!
-Oh, my God. -Oh! ♪♪ -Butter?
Is it sticks of butter? [ Ding! ]
-Oh, my God! ♪♪ [ Laughter and applause ] -Get this out.
-It seems so easy. -Yeah? It seems so easy,
well, get ready, you’re about to play this game.
Oh, man. Get ready.
Oh, you are good at that. All right, here we go. [ Audience groans ] -The reaction is the worst part. [ Laughter ] I make fun of it.
I’ve been watching this game. -Ugh! Ew!
-Stop it. [ Laughter ] -Ow!
-What was that? [ Laughter ] Okay, I’m going this side.
-Okay, no! [ Screaming ]
-[ Screaming ] What is it? Jimmy!
[ Laughter ] -Trust me, I won’t —
seriously, I’m being serious. -Oh.
-Do whatever you touch with that hand.
Yeah, that’s it. Yep. Go right in. -No. -I promise you. Trust me. That hand. That hand. -I’m sweating now.
-Trust me. It’s that hand. You’ve got it. You’ve got it.
That’s it. Feel what that is. You can squish it
between your fingers. -No!
Oh, God, is it an ant farm? [ Laughter ] [ Buzzer ]
[ Sad tuba plays ] -It’s not an ant farm.
It was — It’s a sand castle. -Oh.
-Yeah. [ Laughter ]
-That’s close. I mean, ant farm was close. [ Laughter ]
-Yeah. -Wow.
-Maybe we’ll give you credit. I know, it’s tough right?
-Wow. -It’s a mental game, right?
-Holy cow. -All right, oh, no.
This one looks big. Why is this box bigger
than the other box? [ Audience oohs ] [ Cheers and applause ] [ Ominous music plays ] -You’ve got to go down. [ Laughter ] I mean, once you —
once you feel the top, you’ll want to go down.

on my finger right now. Something liquidy is in there. -Yeah. -Oh, it’s liquid. It’s warm. It’s going to be an amphibian.
It’s going to be a frog. A frog. -I’m looking at it,
and I have no idea what it is. [ Buzzer ] -Should I just try to touch it
one more time? [ Cheers and applause ] ♪♪ -It appears to be docile. ♪♪ [ Cheers and applause ] -[ Screaming ] Ew! Ew! Gross! Disgusting! Ew! Was it an eel or a snake

Spider Eggs In Your Garage – Bulwark Exterminating

Spider Eggs In Your Garage – Bulwark Exterminating


Garages are notorious places for
Cobwebs and spiders. This area has been treated but there are quite a few egg sacs let me see if I can pull a few out for ya. Typical house spider egg sac has anywhere from four hundred to eight hundred baby eggs
in it because these little white markings eventually within a year those egg sacs will hatch and even though the garages been sprayed it’ll reinfest. If this was in your wall or up around the
siding on the exterior of your house around your windows sill those baby
eggs would be all over inside your home

Weaver Ants | The Guardians of the Canopy

Weaver Ants | The Guardians of the Canopy


hi guys my name is Jordan and in this
video I’m exploring Australia’s topics up in northern Queensland. Here ancient
rainforests stretch as far as the eye can see and are home to an incredibly
diverse range of wildlife. Including one of the most unique ant species I’ve ever
encountered. They are the highly prolific and ingenious Weaver ants. Weaver ants fall under the genus Oecophylla and are found solely within tropical and
subtropical climates throughout Africa Asia and Australia. The ones found here
in Australia are often known as green ants after their vibrant green color. what makes Weaver ants so different from
most other ants is instead of burrowing down and forming their nests within the
ground, Weaver ants form their nests up in the trees. Their homes can usually be
found towards the ends of branches where the fresh healthy leaves sprout. Fruit
bearing trees with broad leaves are favored, but they’ll happily work within
narrow-leaved eucalyptus trees and sometimes will even utilise needle thin
leaves like those from this Beach she-oak. Construction begins with the ants firmly
grabbing hold of a leaf with their mandibles pulling stretching and curling
them into position… Next, the ants do something quite
remarkable they enlist the help of an unlikely ally, their own young. These
small pill shaped grubs are the ants larvae. They’re unable to travel on their
own so the ants carefully carry them over to their worksite. At this point the ants begin to gently
tap their heads using their antennae. This induces the larvae to expel strands
of silk from a small gland underneath their mouths. Normally ant larvae use their silk for metamorphosis spinning a cocoon which
helps protect them as they develop into their pupal form and eventually hatch
as an adult. But in the case of Weaver ants, they use their silken thread to
instead weave leaves together. Creating a super strong binding. Once complete the
ants now have themselves a comfy and safe waterproof refuge, a perfect place
to raise their young and allow their colony to thrive. Younger colonies might
have their nests comprised of just a single leaf curled in half and neatly
stitched together. But as they expand their numbers they gradually create
additional nests. Established Weaver ant colonies may occupy dozens at once, some
with massive nests comprised of hundreds of leaves all clustered purposefully
together. This nest here the size of a beach ball. Other much smaller nests are often
positioned along the perimeter of the colony’s territory acting as outposts.
The first line of defence against intruders, the most common of which being
foreign and colonies. Which may seek to ambush and invade their rivals. This
Vanguard is often occupied by the eldest ants of the colony deemed to be the
most expendable. But it’s not just raiders that the Weaver ants need to
worry about. Here in the dense foliage of the rain forest, plants are constantly
competing with one another, reaching as high as they can to soak up as much
light as possible. So naturally down on the forest floor
not much light seeps through making ground temperatures significantly cooler as ants are cold-blooded animals when in
happening cool climates they aren’t nearly as active limiting their foraging
capabilities and slowing down the growth of their future generations
this gives Weaver ants a significant advantage over the forest ground
dwelling ant species living up in the canopy Weaver ants can stay nice and
warm in the sun’s rays much like a crocodile basking on an open riverbank
the extra heat greatly extends the ants active hours and increases their
productivity but the canopy is ever-changing many
trees lose the battle against neighboring trees which outgrow them
shrouding them in darkness some even become the target of parasitic plants
like this strangler fig which slowly wraps itself around its host restricting
the tree’s ability to grow its dealing their life from above and absorbing up
most of the surrounding nutrients within the soil below so Weaver ants must
actively reposition themselves in order to pursue the sun’s valuable heat the
most successful colonies are often found nearby clearings in the forest alongside
rivers coastlines and cyclone affected areas
where strong winds have torn down temporary clearings in the forest
here along the forest perimeters they’re almost completely unhindered by shade so
the ants can take even better advantage of the sun’s warmth rapidly speeding up
the development cycles of the young helping them grow to enormous sizes some
colonies can be home to hundreds of thousands of ants strong the leaves which form their homes do
inevitably die and crumble into pieces and so must be abandoned for fresh ones
so even in ideal conditions Weaver ants are kept extremely busy constantly
rebuilding renovating and relocating their homes all this hard work requires plenty of
energy which we’ve Rance obtained from two main sources
honey jus and insects honey you is sourced from sap-sucking invertebrates
like these merely bugs here these tiny insects bore their way into fresh plant
stems and leaves and consume their SAP as the SAP is digested they excrete
excess waste in the form of a sugary liquid rich in carbohydrates the perfect
fuel to keep the ever busy Weaver ants going so instead of eating these bugs
themselves the Weaver ants cluster around them waiting patiently for their
sweet reward but most other bugs aren’t so forward-thinking ladybugs love
devouring these little guys the mealy bugs can secrete a powdery wax coating
their bodies which helps discourage their attackers someone but otherwise
they’re virtually defenseless the ants are their real defense as a few of them
feed many others patrol the surrounding area for threats but there are some predators which can
be a much trickier foe to deal with jumping spiders they’re often seen
eyeing off their little friends on their own they’re no match for the Weaver ants
so they must be stealthy and wait for the perfect opportunity to strike if
detected the predator could easily turn into the prey almost spotted the spider
sensibly backs off too risky for this meal weave rants themselves a very
effective predators they have excellent eyesight when compared to most other
ends and can utilize their strong razor-sharp mandibles to great effect
given the chance and they’ll tackle almost anything they find once their
prey is secured each end pulls from multiple directions stretching out and
dismembering their helpless victims so that they can be efficiently returned to
their nests and distributed amongst their corny
a large part of Weaver ants diet are other ants a great source of amino acids
here in the rainforest ants a highly abundant and come in all manner of
shapes and sizes many of the ground dwelling species regularly venture up
into the trees to forage for food but this often means passing through Weaver
ant territory so they must be wary all it takes is a single ant to notice their
presence and soundly along once one ant gets a good grip all it needs to do is
secure their rival down and simply wait for reinforcements to arrive this one on
one scuffle is likely the victims only chance to escape several more quickly follow suit pinning
it down its fate now sealed not only a rival ants and nutritious and reliable
source of food but removing them also reduces competition at the same time any
food that these ants would have discovered and returned back to their
nest now ends up as their own further proliferating their range and dominance the more vast the corney’s territories
the longer distances the ants must cover in order to best utilize the available
resources and to maintain their control over it in dense forests Weaver ants can
easily navigate from one tree to the next thanks to the vast labyrinth of
vines and branches into connecting the canopy allowing them to access and
colonize multiple trees without ever needing to descend the long way down to
the forest floor whilst most comfortable up in the trees
on occasion they will venture down to the ground forage this particular colony
is nested along the beach in and amongst the salt tolerant mangroves regularly
they send out scouting parties during low tide scavenging upon whatever the
water is swept in this gecko here is a notable find and
will be a great source of nourishment for their quarry the answer tempted to
break a park the lizard into more manageable pieces pulling from all
angles some of the ends begin targeting the vulnerable joints slicing into and
spraying them with formic acid this noxious liquid expelled from the ants
abdomens slowly burns and breaks down the flesh within despite the ants determined biting an
acid spring the gecko is proving rather difficult to pour part before the tide
returns it must be either taken to higher ground as is or left behind but
these Weaver ants are more than up to the challenge
they have tiny hooked claws on the ends of their feet giving them incredible
gripping strength even at the steepest and most obscure of angles paired with their ability to work in
synergy with their fellow colony members they are able to accomplish some pretty
remarkable feats hauling our prey much larger than themselves all the way up to
the treetops sometimes Weaver ants will improvise
quicker routes along the way to make their job is a little easier some of
which may at first not even seem possible the path up a low-hanging
branch from the ground below the ants can’t jump or fly across like
other insects mine instead they must build a bridge to close the gap a bridge
made of hands each ant grips on to each other using their mandibles slowly
forming a chain and eventually they’ll link up from
either end and their shortcut is complete such incredible teamwork but
not all members of the colony err is capable of securing prey in traversing
their environment as these answer some rarely venture out from their homes at
all Weaver ants are a polymorphic species meaning they produce different
castes of workers which perform distinct roles within their colony the main cast
are the mages the ones who do most of the foraging in nest building another
first line of defense against intruders the other caste are the miners they look
almost identical to the mages but side-by-side you can see they’re much
smaller in size this cast of worker is assigned to nesting duties spending most
of their time tending to the colony’s developing brood and looking after their
queen the mother to the entire colony quite the accomplishment so that’s we friends there’s such an
incredibly unique and species from the way that they construct their homes from
leaves using their own young as tools to building living bridges to efficiently
scale their surroundings to their brutal yet methodical approach of securing prey
I think what amazes me most is their extreme aggression just slightly
brushing against their nests or a nearby branch is enough to set them into a
frenzy as a defensive response they posture up their bodies and kill their
abdomens over their heads poised to fire out wrapping strings of their formic
acid if this liquid were to get into a potential threat size like a bird or a
lizard it surely made for a great deterrent one of the reasons most other
animals like to give these guys a wide berth next to me dance they’re probably
the most territorial ants I’ve ever encountered regardless I really enjoyed
documenting these guys and exploring the forests which they and countless other
animals call home like giant butterflies and grasshoppers the size of my hand
plenty of other amazing ant species like trap joints jumping adds spider heads golden tailed spiny ants
and lots more the cute little turtles I saw swimming up and down the streams and
the massive saltwater crocodiles hanging out along the estuaries the largest
living reptiles in the world I was even lucky enough to spot three wild southern
cassowaries one of the largest living birds in the world these modern-day
dinosaurs mostly feed on fallen fruit and a highly important seed disperses
many of the forest plants depend entirely on these birds to survive unfortunately they’re an endangered
species mostly due to habitat loss as a result of deforestation
let’s just hope these ancient and incredibly biodiverse forests remain
around for a long time to come sadly Australia has just been hit with
one of its worst bushfire seasons in recorded history which definitely
doesn’t help I’m fortunate to not have been affected
by the fires living here in Melbourne aside from experiencing several days of
thick smoke I could only imagine what it was like
closer to the flames whilst fire is a natural part of the Australian landscape
with some forests actually needing fire in order to reproduce and thrive these
fires following Australia’s 2019 record average high temperatures and low levels
of rainfall burned an unprecedented strength devastating vast amounts of
land and claiming the lives of countless native animals many which managed to
escape the flames had little to no habitats left to them and ended up
either starving or being hunted down by invasive predators like feral cats and
foxes which have an easy time spotting them within the open scorched land
the combination of this extreme heat and prolonged droughts also allowed fire to
reach his way into environments which aren’t naturally adapted to it unable to
fully recover if affected even lush rainforests which
has stood since the Cretaceous period at least 65 million years ago were ablaze
as Earth’s climate changes we can expect to see extreme natural disasters like
these occurring more and more frequently and on even larger scales governments
and policies at least here in Australia really treat environmental concerns
seriously repeatedly dismissing scientific research and delaying the
transition from fossil fuels into cleaner energy production so it’s really
up to us as individuals to take matters into our own hands there’s many places
we can start in reducing our environmental footprint but one of the
most impactful steps we can take is changing something which most of us do
at least three times every day it’s what we eat whilst often-overlooked animal
agriculture is one of the main drivers of deforestation fresh water usage
species extinction and greenhouse gas emissions so avoiding the consumption of
animal products like meat dairy and eggs is a simple way we can all collectively
make a huge difference helping to conserve and restore the natural world
and bring it back to its former glory oh no I don’t know this channel is
almost at a hundred thousand subscribers thank you guys so much for your
overwhelming support over the years when I started making videos back in 2014 I
honestly never expected more than a hundred people to be interested let
alone nearly a hundred thousand it’s really great to see that there’s so many
of you out there deeply interested in ads also a big thanks to my generous
patreon supporters for helping make these videos possible and a special
thanks to my top-tier supporters and Iker Ben Cargill John Overton nicholas
atkins and thomas window now on to the regular giveaway where you
guys get a chance to win one of our specially designed air phones in my last
video on medias I asked what do you find most interesting about them I think what
I find so interesting is the way that they kick box to resolve their
territorial disputes with rival colonies such a quirky yet highly civilized
strategy of success so the winner is Alex Boyd who is most interested in how
medians can predate Australia’s invasive cane toads making them conservationists
ants of sorts and was also fascinated with how medians and sugar ants are able
to coincide due to their opposite foraging hours a great display of how
maidens have their own niche in their ecosystem congratulations Alex you’ve
just won yourself one of our acrylic starter kits for next videos giveaway
we’ll be putting one of our white song starter kits up for grabs which includes
one of our founding size of white or nests along with a bunch of accessories
to enter simply answer the following what do you find most interesting about
Weaver ants is it the way that they stitch leaves together how they build
living bridges or something else post your answers in
the comment section below I’ll pick out a single comment and announce them as
the winner in my next video as always thanks for watching and I hope you enjoy

You Wish You Had Mites Like This Hissing Cockroach | Deep Look


Is there anything more lowly than the lowly
cockroach? Uh, yeah there is. That’s a cockroach mite. It lives its entire life on this cockroach. But these hitchhikers are doing a lot more
good than you might think. The mites are only on one type of cockroach – these
guys – Madagascar hissing cockroaches… …which are known for their hiss, of course. They do that when disturbed or looking for
a mate. They only live in the Madagascar rainforest
on an island off the coast of Africa. And they’re bigger than the cockroaches
you might find in your kitchen, like these brown-banded roaches. These pests will eat anything: food scraps,
poop, trash – you name it. As a result, they can spread disease or trigger
allergies. Hissing cockroaches are detritivores – they
mainly eat decaying leaves, tidying up the forest floor. They can even be kept as pets, because they’re
more docile than their common cousins. And most importantly, they’re a lot cleaner
… thanks to a permanent population of tiny housekeepers. Ok, yeah, it looks pretty bad. The mites crowd together in the crevices – places
where the cockroach can’t brush them off. They get their meals near the cockroach’s
head, gobbling up the food bits and saliva that the roach leaves behind. When they get thirsty, they head to the spiracles:
the openings the roach uses to breathe. The mites get water vapor from them. The roach also has one special hissing spiracle
for that signature sound. The mites live on a single roach, unless they
get passed on from roach parent to roach baby. They’re doing these cockroaches a favor. By cleaning up the old food and debris, the
mites help keep them free of mold and pathogens … potentially extending the roaches’ lives. Really, both a hissing cockroach and its mites
have the same important job: keeping the world a little bit neater. Not so lowly, after all. Looking for more wild science adventures? Journey to Earth’s most remote laboratory
in Antarctic Extremes, a harsh, thrilling and hilarious new show from NOVA and PBS Digital
Studios. Hosts Caitlin Saks and Arlo Pérez reveal
a world where science and survival meet. Find the show on Terra, PBS Digital Studios’

How Do Ants Find Food? | Animal Science for Kids


Squeaks and I just got back from a picnic
outside. We brought all of our favorite picnic foods:
sandwiches, fruit, and even some cookies for dessert. That’s true, we also got some unexpected
visitors! Some ants came to check out our picnic, too. They carried away some of our crumbs! The ants that came to our picnic were worker
ants, and it’s their job to collect food. See, ants live together in homes called anthills. If you’ve ever seen a little pile of sand
on the sidewalk with ants crawling all over it — that’s an anthill! The different ants that live in the anthill
have different jobs. There’s one big ant called the queen. Her job is to lay all of the eggs that will
hatch into baby ants. Then there are the males, all of the boy ants
that take care of the queen. The queen and the males hardly ever leave
the anthill. The rest of the ants are called workers. They do things like build the ant hill tunnels,
protect the anthill, and go out to find food to bring back for the queen and the males. The worker ants do have to work really hard,
Squeaks. They need to find enough food to feed themselves,
the queen, and the males, not to mention the baby ants. Luckily, the workers have some special skills
that help them to find plenty of food. When a worker ant is out looking for food,
she uses her great sense of smell to sniff out any food in the area. But instead of using a nose like us, she uses
her antennae, the two little things sitting on top of her head. An ant’s antennae are actually better at
smelling than a human’s nose. They can easily smell things that people can’t
smell at all. And when a worker ant’s antennae smell some
tasty food, like the fruit at our picnic, she can follow the smell until she finds the
food. Now that she knows where the food is, she
can use her eyes to look around at what’s near the food, like a tree or our bright picnic
blanket. If she needs to find the food again, she’ll
look for those familiar sights until she finds the food. And ants will eat just about anything. Most ants are omnivores, meaning that they’ll
eat plants, other animals, and all sorts of things. The different foods they like to eat all have
different smells, so the ant can smell out which one she wants to bring home today. Ants love sugar, so it makes sense that they
went after our cookie crumbs! They were really big pieces for one tiny ant
to carry, Squeaks. But ants are incredibly strong! They can carry something that’s up to 50
times heavier than they are. That would be like you picking up a small
car! But if something is too heavy even for an
ant, a bunch of other worker ants will come help her out. Squeaks, how do you think the other ants find
the first worker ant? That’s right, they use their antennae and
their sense of smell. When a worker ant is on the trail for some
tasty food, she can leave a smelly trail behind her, which the other ants can follow using
their antennae. When a whole group of ants is following a
trail like this, they form a line of helpers ready to use
some teamwork to move some big food. At our picnic, they even managed to move a
whole cookie together. One ant is pretty strong by herself, but by
working together, these ants are incredible. I’m glad they came to visit our picnic,
too! And I’m glad that the whole anthill will
have food now. What about you? Have you ever seen worker ants looking for
food? What would you look for if you had super-smeller
antennae? Grab a grownup to help you leave a comment

Hunting Creepy Crawlies!!!! Pt2 – Spiders and Wasps and Lions! Oh My!!


This hunting blind has been sitting in
this spot for about two years and during this past winter my son cleared it out
of wasps nests but I can see one perched right there watching me in that
crack. You’re not going to see it because it is too dark. I actually filmed it already
and couldn’t get anything to show. So I’m gonna open this window right here. Hopefully i won’t get buzzed or stung. We’ll see what we can see. There’s a spiderweb. No spiders manning it. Not that I can see. I think I hear the red wasps buzzing
around me right now. There’s one flying around. See it right there flying around?!?
Maybe giving me a warning. I’ll probably end up heeding the warning if he does
anything more. Oh yeah!!! Oh yeah!!! They’re not happy!! See them all right there on the corner?? They’re wondering why it suddenly got a
little bit brighter in there, and what’s going on…..?? That’s about as close as I’m gonna get! If you can see you know even these….. That are Red Wasps are not aggressive or not insanely aggressive. I’m like a foot and a half away, I’ve
been here for a while. I have my hand held out with the camera….. and as long as
that’s all I’m doing, they are leaving me alone. So you don’t have to take out (Remove) every
single nest that you see. They provide some benefit as well!! Now I’ve got my arm down here too close to this, and that one is acting all nervous…. I got it closed, and they just flew off!! And YEP! They’re telling me to go! So they
have not stung me or anything yet, but they are right up on me and they’re
following me!! So, you have to be cautious but i didn’t
get stung. I’m also NOT panicking either. I think they can smell your adrenaline
or other fear hormones. I don’t have a tripod with me today but this roof right
here is too tempting to not lift up and turn over. But i need to set the phone
down. I’m likely to find some black widows underneath here, so wish me luck that I
don’t get bit when i’m flipping it up…. There was some movement and made me a little bit nervous as I was lifting it up but it was just some field mice. Look right here. They brought in all
the fine little grass there and they had some little paths and runs through
here. It’s not going to show up that well in the
camera. One or two of them went scampering away when I lifted it. Now, I don’t see any
black widows…… But we did find this lady right here! She’s a big one!! Either a garden spider or a wolf spider. Somebody might be able to identify her better based on those markings. She’s a
pretty good sized one. It looks like with some nasty fangs too. ((No, they were just mandibles.)) I don’t know if she’s going to be
aggressive about me being so close. You see her fangs? Kind of nasty looking! ((It wasn’t fangs, just spider mandibles)) There is a size comparison. My hand is up
against the metal. That’s for size comparison right there. All right, nothing other than a fire ant mound
that was up against here. I don’t see anything else. Usually barn with the woodpile
is going to be notorious for spiders!! brown recluses and black widows….Funnel web
spiders. A big one right there. You can see him…
See how long he’ll stay still!? See him back up in there?? He is an American
funnel web. It’s not really poisonous like….. what is
that?…the Australian funnel-web!? He is just hanging out! All right despite going and looking for
creepy crawlies I don’t want to get bit by a black widow or brown recluse. I gotta
be careful but I’m gonna turn over a couple pieces here and see if we can’t
spot something. I’m not seeing anything so far. Hmmmmm… I guess I got to find a better spot that
might have black widows. Along the ground here in this dirt underneath the pole
barn, you see all these craters!!! what is that??????? Well those are Ant lions!!! What is it the mayfly??? that these are the
nymphs of??? So any way, down at the bottom they make… You know, they work their way down until they make that cone shape. Then along comes an ant and falls in the cone. And with pincers he’ll just grab it! We’ll try to scoop over some dirt, and if they move around you’ll be able to see them. I’ll show you a couple. They actually remind you a little bit….. if you remember watching the old Star TREK movie: Wrath of Khan. They use these guys as their idea for the ear worm or whatever ‘its called’. That they use
against Kirk. Usually once you turn over their burrow
they’ll start moving a little bit to get back up underneath what you’ve exposed. I don’t see any movement there, So, we’ll check over here. One right there!!! The earth is moving…. Right there! I will pick him up
gently. These are antlion larvae (doodle bugs). When I was little we used to call them antlions. See they move backwards but they
have these big nasty pincers mouth parts on the front. I’m trying to
see it There, I blew off some of the dirt so
you might be able to see a little bit better Would you like to have that thing going
down in your ear ???? Look, you can see
right there it just backs up, right into the dirt and
disappears! there’s one!! apparently i
disturbed him. He’s tossing the dirt back out to make himself another cone. yep it’s that one there was another one
there Alright thanks for watching!!!! Let’s see
what else we can find! All right, there’s a mini bail of hay!!!!
It’s only been there for maybe a week at this location. But with the
rain some critters may have a gone underneath it to take cover!!! I can push it back and then we should
back up here we’ll see what’s underneath and then put it back. Yeah, I don’t see mice under there. I thought there might have been
some mice underneath. There’s the dry top….. nothing underneath?? Yeah!!! there are
some creepies here. And there you see that little spider there. Oh she disappeared There it goes weird looking little spider
