The Double-Crossing Ants to Whom Friendship Means Nothing | Deep Look

The Double-Crossing Ants to Whom Friendship Means Nothing | Deep Look


The Peruvian Amazon rainforest is bursting
with life, but it’s a hard place to make a living,
especially when you’re small. Competition… is fierce. Violence and betrayal are everywhere. Up here, in the canopy? These trees have made it. Lots of leaves. Plenty of sunlight. But down here, on the forest floor, it’s
another story. This sapling desperately needs to grow, to
get more sun. And in the meantime, it’s vulnerable. It doesn’t have many leaves yet. Each one is valuable. Losing just a few could be its demise. So this young tree, it’s called an Inga,
enlists bodyguards.. hundreds of them. These big-headed ants swarm over the sapling,
fighting off any leaf-eating intruders, like this caterpillar. The price of protection: a meal: sugary nectar. The tree serves it up in ant-sized dishes
called nectaries. Both the ant and the tree have something to
gain from the deal. This is called “mutualism.” But that only works when both sides play by
the rules. Here’s another intruder. See how the ants rush to meet it? But they aren’t biting or stinging it. They don’t attack it like they’re supposed
to. Instead the ants just… watch… as the caterpillar gorges on the fresh leaves. They’re just letting it happen. Why? Because they found a better deal. See how the ants tap on the caterpillar’s
rear with their antennae? Those two little pits on the caterpillar’s
back are called tentacle nectaries. When the ants tap, the nectaries secrete drops
of nectar. It’s made of sugar that the caterpillar
drained out of the leaf. In exchange for the payoff, the ants give
the caterpillars free access to their so-called partner, the Inga tree. They’ve been bribed. As for the tree? It’s left weaker, a little less likely to
make it up to the canopy. And that’s the sad story of the young Inga. Sold out for a drop of sugar water by a fairweather
friend. You like ants? We got ants. Lots of ants. Winter ants battle Argentine ants with weapons caught on film for the very first time! Leafcutter ants that have been farming since
before we humans walked the earth. All that and more on Deep Look. So subscribe… And thanks for watching.

Nerf War: Flying Bug Attack 3 (Twin Toys)


(ominous music) – Josh, what’re you looking at? Are you okay? (dramatic music) (bugs buzzing) Bugs! Run! – [Dave] Oh, what, oh my gosh, wait! Dude, what’s going on? – There is bugs outside. Did you see those bugs?
– Everywhere. – [Dave] Wait, there’s what? – There’s bugs everywhere. – [Dave] There’s bu, there’s no, wait. (groaning) They’re already here, wait, no. We already know that there’s bugs outside. – No, we were running. We were in the house. We ran over here. There was a TV commercial. Did you see the TV commercial on the news? – Yeah. – There’s guys saying
about this bug invasion. We heard this noise and we looked out, and these things are going crazy. – [Dave] Bigger than the
ones that are already out there right now. ‘Cause you, ’cause you
– Have you? – [Dave] Saw the bugs over at your house, so why you flipping out now? – They’re everywhere! – Like hundred, swarms.
– A swarm! – [Dave] Crazy swarm. – You just hear this noise. – [Dave] But where’d you see it? – Comin’ down the street! – [Dave] Are you serious? – Yes. – [Dave] Oh my god, Eli,
can you believe this? – Yes. – Oh, this is crazy. Oh my gosh, what’s going on twitter? Can you believe what’s goin’ on? We got Tim and Noah
from across the street, from Toys, Fun and Games, and they, there’s this humongous swarm coming! What’s goin’ on? Listen, I thought you were Hello Neighbor. Wait, wait, wait. You’re not Hello Neighbor. No, you’re not Hello Neighbor and you’re not Hello Neighbor, are you? – No. – [Dave] Last time you checked? – [Eli] You’re a kid. – [Dave] Yeah you’re a kid. You’re Noah, right? Well, Eli. Dude, what, what happened to your hair? Oh, let me see this again. Oh my, what in the world? – You have good hair too! – [Dave] Wait what? – Yes, you have good hair. – [Dave] I have good hair? – Yes! – Oh, he says I have good hair. – You have, like, flat hair. – What, you mean my hair’s cut? My hair can’t be- (dramatic music) Is it really cut?! – [Eli] It’s like, it’s like- – Who in the world cut? – [Eli] You look a little
bit like a bald head. – A bald head, oh, that’s beautiful! – [Book] I thought you guys
could use a new haircut. So you’re welcome. – Well that makes sense then, ’cause it’s just out of nowhere. Wait, what? – How convenient would
that be to get my hair cut anytime I needed it? – [Dave] Oh, you guys would
like that, wouldn’t you? – I don’t want my hair
cut like yours though. – [Dave] Oh, hey, excuse me! Again, enjoy the hair. Oh, look at this, look
at this beautiful hair. You’re probably, like, ten
times more older than me. – Maybe like Eli’s but, or like Noah’s – [Eli] Noah’s is flat. – But not like-
– Your hair is flat. – Oh gosh, enough with my hair, back to the bugs. – [Tim] What about these bugs? – I know, this is the most- – ‘Cause the last time we had these bugs, you guys took care of this. Can you, can you do something about this? – [Dave] I do believe that we are masters of takin’ care of the bugs. We did take care of them
last time, right, Eli? – Yes. – [Dave] Yeah, they had
no chance of getting away. – The last time the bugs were here. – [Dave] That’s right. – We’ll help you any way we can, but we need to get rid of these bugs. – [Dave] Oh, you’re gonna help this time? We’re not hiding? – We can, yeah.
– Yeah. – Yes?
– Yeah. – Yeah, we won’t hide.
– Yes. – [Dave] So you’re gonna hide? – Yeah.
– No! – [Dave] You’re not hiding? – No, no. – [Dave] Are you sure this time? – Yes.
– No, we won’t hide. – [Dave] Regardless of how big or how many bugs there are? – Yes. – Are you sure?
– Yes. – [Tim] We are ready. – [Dave] What was that
right in the middle? – There was, like, a big
queen bee right in the middle. – [Dave] Wait, what? There was a big? – [Tim] Well, it wasn’t a bee. – [Dave] Dude, that would
be something to mention- – Like a queen locust. – [Dave] The first thing you say! – [Tim] It was huge. – [Dave] Oh my goodness, how big was it? Like massive, like a car? – Yes. – [Dave] Wait a minute, what is this, like a video game or something? Is this like a boss battle
that we have to defeat? – [Book] You will find the
spell needed to defeat Elsa in the New Humera section
you have unlocked. – [Dave] What? – Is that a talking book? – [Dave] Oh yeah, that’s right. Well, you didn’t hear it before? – No, did you hear the book? – [Dave] Okay, you terrible ears, man. – No. – [Dave] It’s a talking book! Elsa, from like “Frozen”? – Maybe she means the
queen locust is Elsa. – [Dave] Is, maybe the queen
bee is named ‘Elsa’, right? – Yeah. – A talking book, says the queen locust is
Elsa, and it cuts your hair? This is all too creepy for me! – [Dave] Yeah, this is our life, dude. This is normal stuff. – [Eli] What’s happening? – Oh, wait a minute, that’s right! We forgot to tell you why. There’s kind of a backstory, if you’re wondering why
these bugs are here. – So you know why the bugs are here? – [Dave] Yeah, it’s not
just because of cicadas – [Eli] It’s ’cause it’s Hello Neighbor!
– every 17 years. There’s actually more to it. Wait, why is it, Eli? – It’s because Hello Neighbor here. – [Dave] So what do we do to him? – Hello Neighbor? That creepy guy with the big head that I see walking around
every once in awhile? – That’s right! Here, I’ll tell the story. Okay, so last week, a couple weeks ago, we found Humera stones at
Clammer, and then all of a sudden, he stole and then all of
a sudden, he stole a book. He’s being real greedy. He’s a real terrible guy, right? Help me, we don’t like
Hello Neighbor, right? – Yeah, no, we don’t. – [Tim] He’s creepy. – [Dave] Yeah, he’s a
real creepstar, isn’t he? Do you like Hello Neighbor? – No. – [Dave] No, he’s really creepy, isn’t he? Didn’t we chase him down, Eli? – Yeah! – Yeah, we chased him down,
Mommy took care of him, in the elevator, right, or
when he left the elevator. And then, all of a sudden, we
realized that he was looking for his twin brother. He has a twin brother! – He’s a twin? – [Dave] Yes, he has a twin. – That creepy guy, – [Dave] Isn’t that crazy? – Yes.
– So it’s two creepy guys. – So it’s twice as creepy. – [Dave] It’s twice as creepy. Absolutely twice as creepy, right? – Yeah. – Right, exactly. So, we thought we did him a favor, and we took down his brother. His brother, you know,
whipping out the Nerf blasters, and then all of a sudden, we’re like, “Okay, fine, you got your
blasters, we got our blasters.” And we took him down. I guess he found his brother just there, and I don’t think he’s happy. ‘Cause he gave us a
note, and the note said, “I know what you did to my
brother, here comes the swarm.” – [Tim] Swarm, as in? – [Dave] Swarm as in what’s
outside coming for us! – Cicada swarm. – [Dave] What’s coming for us! The big swarm that’s coming. It’s because of Hello Neighbor. Oh yeah, by the way,
remember when I got bit, over at your house? That cicada was on my shoulder? – [Tim] Oh yeah! – Dude, it jacked my eye up, and I have not been feeling well at all. You should really see,
watch, watch, watch, right. See, look. You see it? – Ah, no? (chuckles) – [Dave] What do you mean, ‘no’? – [Tim] No, his eye is
fine, look at his eye. – Yeah, your eye is fine. – [Dave] Wait, it’s fine? – [Tim] There’s nothing
wrong with your eye. – It’s fine. – It can’t be. Okay, twitter army, seriously. Put a comment. Is my eye, is it better? Wait, wait, Eli, hold this. Eli, hold this, hold this, hold this. I gotta flip this camera around. – [Tim] See, your eye’s fine, man. There’s nothing wrong with it. – What’s goin’ on? – [Book] You can thank me now. – So you’re telling me you did it? Dude, yo, this book’s crazy! Can you believe this book? This book’s awesome!
(mumbling) Gives haircuts. – The book
– Takes care of– – fixed your eye? – [Dave] Yeah, yeah, I guess. – Wait a minute, can
he get rid of the bugs? – [Dave] It’s a she. I think the book’s a woman’s voice. – Can he make the bugs to get away? – [Dave] I like the way you’re thinkin’. Let’s use the ring,
’cause that’s the oracle. Hey, oracle. So why don’t you cast
a spell on these bugs and just cast them away? – [Book] I could have, but then you wouldn’t be able
to unlock your full potential and unleash the new survival skills that are buried within. – [Dave] Wait, what? – That’s just (blows raspberry) – [Dave] That’s not, that’s shady, yo. She like wants to see us–
– So what are we gonna do? – [Dave] She wants to
see us, like, suffer. – So she won’t do it, ’cause she wants us to learn how to do it. – [Dave] That’s right, oh, look at that. – He’s smart! He takes after his dad. – [Dave] Oh, beautiful! (laughing) Oh, that’s perfect. – [Tim] Takes after his dad. – [Dave] That’s, okay,
but this is not cool, because now she’s just watching us do our normal. This is– – That’s not even cool. – So, I don’t know if
you want to ask your book about this bug. Why would they name a bug Elsa? – [Dave] I think that’s a good point. Why would they name the bug “Elsa”? Okay, I’m gonna ask, but
I think I know the answer. Okay, Oracle, why in the
world did Hello Neighbor name this queen bug “Elsa”? – [Book] Elsa is the name of the queen bug that Hello Neighbor created
in his radioactive laboratory. He is a big fan of Disney movies, and can’t wait until Toy
Story Four comes out. – Toy Story Four? (cell phone beeps) Hold on guys, hold on, hold on. I got a text. Look at this, look at this. – [Eli] Hello Neighbor sent it. – [Dave] Hello Neighbor just texted. – [Tim] Hello Neighbor’s texting you? – [Eli] Is it, but which?
– [Tim] What’s did he say? – [Dave] Can you guess what
my favorite Disney movie is? – [Eli] That’s a lot! – What’s his? – Why not Elsa, because he
named the queen bee Elsa? – [Dave] So we’re saying it’s “Frozen”? – Yeah.
– So you think it’s “Frozen”? Are we all saying it’s “Frozen”?
– Yeah, I guess so. – [Dave] Say, how about this,
“I don’t know, “Frozen”?” Okay, let’s see what he says. Oh, by the way, guys, look at this, you guys see this? Look at this. You could put your
Nintendo Switch in here. Isn’t that awesome? – That’s awesome.
– Whoa. – [Dave] Isn’t this sweet? I mean, you can put darts there. – [Eli] Wait, let me see.
(cell phone beeps) – Hold on, hold on, hold on. I think he responded back,
I think he responded back. Dude, “Say hello to the
new queen bee, Elsa.” He wants to play this game? Watch this. Dude, you gotta relax. You like Frozen so
much, here’s one for ya. ♪ Let it go, let it go ♪
(giggling) Enjoy that!! Enjoy those apples, huh? Wasn’t that great? Let it go, it’s the perfect line, right? (boys shouting)
(dramatic music) Wait, what. What?
– Come here! – [Dave] Liam, Liam,
what’s going on, dude? Where are we going,
wait, where are we going? – [Liam] Where are we going? – [Dave] What’s going, wait, what? – Look. (bugs buzzing) They’re coming.
– Look where? – [Tim] See, I told you. I told you that’s what I saw. – [Dave] Oh no. (basketballs thumping) (dramatic music) – Josh, what are you looking at? Are you okay? (dramatic music) (bugs buzzing) Bugs! Run! (dramatic music)
(buzzing) – Okay, okay, okay, we– Okay, now it’s real. I mean, I believed you guys, but, okay, now I see it. Okay, this is what we gotta do. You guys need to go back to your house, get some eggshell blasters. Okay, those are the kind of blasters that’s gonna be able to beat these guys. We’re gonna get our gear,
you guys get your gear, we’re gonna meet us
back in the house, okay? Go through the front door. Okay, all right? – Let’s go.
– Let’s go. – [Dave] Let’s go, come on, let’s guys. (dramatic music)
(footsteps tapping) (clicking) (clicking)
(beeping) (dramatic music) (clicking) – Guys, what are you doing? Get in here! Let’s go! – Look, here comes Elsa! (clicking) – Did you just lock the front door? – Yeah, ’cause it’s
Elsa, the mutated cicada. You gotta be a little careful here. – Oh yeah, because now
they have mutated hands to unlock front doors. Okay, regardless that, that
still doesn’t make any sense,. You guys are gonna post
up on those windows on the far one, okay? Noah, you take one, Tim take the one closer to the door, okay? We gotta hurry up. – Wait a minute, I just
thought of something. Where’s Liam at? (walkie buzzing) – [Liam] All clear, ready for action. – Okay, Liam, good. Now, dude, I gotta ask you this. Did you pick the right blaster this time? – [Liam] I got the one
that turns and burns. – Okay, good, ’cause honestly, if you chose the Prometheus again, it’d be the third time, ’cause every time I keep telling you, that
blaster just doesn’t work. – Whoops! (birds chirping) (dramatic music) (blaster clicking) (bugs buzzing)
(dramatic music) (blasting) (blaster firing) (blasting)
(dramatic music) (clicking) – Come on. (dramatic music) (clicking) (blasting) (clicking) (blasting) – How are you taking them down so easy? – [Dave] Guys, use these! – Here, Noah, use this. (blasting) – Hey, wait a minute. Why is Liam not getting any bugs? – Are you serious? Liam, what blaster do you have? – [Liam] The best one ever made. (shouts) (blasting) – Why am I not surprised? – Look guys, I don’t know how
much longer I could do this. – [Eli] I know what to use. (dramatic music) (fans whirring) (bugs buzzing) (blasting) – Wait a minute, that usually works. – Dude, what are you doing? It doesn’t work, obviously, get back here. Get back, get back, come here. (bugs buzzing) (doors clutters shut) – Ooh, what did Hello
Neighbor do to these bugs? – Guys, I’m getting tired. We’re not doing enough damage. – Oh, come on guys. We’ve got ammo for days. Look at this! We’ve just got to keep
this up a little bit, stand strong until Elsa comes. (dramatic music)
(bugs buzzing) – (gasps) That’s a lot
of honey nut Cheerios. (screaming)
(dramatic music) – Guys, guys, window, shut the windows! – Got ’em. (squeaking)
(thumping) – Liam, hurry up, shut your window now. Elsa’s trying to get in. (dramatic music) – Hi. – Hey dad. – Oh yeah, the oracle did
say we’re supposed to use a spell in this book to defeat these bugs. Great thinking, Eli. (dramatic music) I think this is it. Confugeret ad mega apparatus cimex. What was supposed to happen? – [Book] Now use your
blasters and see what happens. – I don’t know, it looks the same. – I don’t know, I think
your spell’s broken, ’cause this guy kinda feels
just like it did before. – [Liam] Oh my gosh guys, this is awesome! (rock music) (blasting) (clicking) (popping) – Dude! (clicking) (blasting) – Whoa! (blasting) – Whoa! (clicking) – Let’s finish this! (rock music) (blasting)
(clicking) (blasting) – Keep going, guys, it’s working! (whirring) Guys, get down. Let’s move! Did it work? – Ugh, what kind of bug was that? – Elsa? – Guys, I think it worked! – I think you’re right, Eli, I don’t even hear the sounds anymore. Come on, let’s go check it out! (dramatic music) – Hey guys, look, they’re gone! – They’re gone? – [Eli] Yeah! – Dude! – [Eli] We did it? We did it! – Dude, we did it! Guys, high five. Nice work, nice work, good job. Oh my gosh, the oracle, she’s awesome. – You know what this
means, the bugs are gone, you don’t have to move now. – Actually, no, we still have to move. Think about it. Hello Neighbor knows where we live. He’s just going to send all
this other stuff at us, right? It’s never-ending. So we gotta move, plus, remember, he’s really upset about
what we did to his brother. – Oh man, we’re really
going to miss you guys. – Aw shucks man, I’m gonna miss you too. (heartfelt music) – [Eli] We really had a lot of fun times staying at this house. (heartfelt music) – [Liam] Wow, this is where
our payback time all started. (heartfelt music) – [Dave] Well, everything
has to come to an end at some point. Now it’s time for a new
chapter in our lives, one without Hello Neighbor. (heartfelt music) (ominous music) – [Dave] Wait a minute. Doesn’t he watch these videos? (rock music)

Free Handling Bullet Ants?!

Free Handling Bullet Ants?!


– I’m going to
free-handle a bullet ant. – Oh, risky. Now you’re conquering
the bullet ant. – Well I do feel pretty
confident at this point that I’ve already taken a sting, it was a pretty bad sting. But, I’m pretty comfortable
just free-handling one of these ants. – Mark, are you ready? – Are you gonna do it?
– Is it possible? – Yeah.
– Ooh, ooh, ooh. – (Laughing) Be careful. (pounding jungle
music with drums) Well guys, it is
officially the end of 2016. I cannot believe
it, I’m still alive, gone through many crazy
episodes this past year. What I wanna do is to
actually bring the guys who are normally
behind the camera in front of the cameras with me. So Mark, Mario, come on
down here and join me. – [Mark] Woo, all right!
– Yeah. Ah!
– Mario, we’re on screen. (laughter and claps) – These guys, what a year, dude. – Yeah.
– My buddies right here. We could not bring you
guys all this content without these two guys
behind the camera. Now it’s been a wild year. It has been the year
of the bullet ant. – [Mark] Yeah it
has been actually. – And actually, I’ve
got one right here in this little container. – (Laughing) You brought one? – Yeah I did, and you know what? – Uh oh!
– What are you doing? – I’m going to
free-handle a bullet ant. – Oh, risky. Now you’re conquering
the bullet ant. – Look at that, well I
do feel pretty confident at this point, that I’ve
already taken a sting. It was a pretty bad sting. But, I’m pretty comfortable
just free-handling one of these ants.
– Mark, are you ready? – Is that possible?
– You gonna do it? You ready?
– Yeah, oh, oh, ooh. – Be careful.
(suspenseful drumbeats) – [Mark] I need a little help. – There you go.
– [Mario] There you go, Mark. – [Coyote] Look at that,
there’s the director of Brave Wilderness Shows
free-handling a bullet ant. A little nerve-wracking, huh? – A little bit.
– What’s that feel like? – [Mark] I try not to
think about it right now. – [Coyote] Now what
we need you to do. – [Mark] I’m trying to
stay as still as possible. – Is take a sting
and then present. – (laughing) Okay, I don’t
want to take your job, that’s your job. – [Coyote] Yeah, we already
cut, let’s do that again, Mark. – (Laughing) No, no. – [Coyote] All right,
let me get the ant back onto my hand,
okay there we go. – Woo!
(laughing) – Bullet ant back
in the container. Okay, let’s back it up. So the beginning
of the year started with the harvester ants.
– That’s right. – [Coyote] Then there
were the fire ants. – [Mark] That was bad,
that was a lot worse than we anticipated. – [Coyote] Yeah, the fire
ants were really, really bad. Then it went to
the alligator bite. – [Mark] Um, hm.
– That one was pretty gnarly. – [Mark] Yeah.
– Then it was. – [Mark] Leeches?
– The leeches, we did the leeches. There was the crab pinch. Then there was the
velvet ant sting. – [Mark] And the
tarantula hawk sting. – And the tarantula hawk sting, that was a rough one for me. And then we finally made
it here to Costa Rica where we faced the
bullet ant challenge, and that was crazy. The ant’s stinger actually
got lodged in my arm. I actually still have.
– You can still see it, yeah. – A scar right there.
– Right there. – Man, that was wild. And we’re at the end of our
Costa Rica trip right now and you may notice my
voice is pretty hoarse. – [Mark] Yeah,
we’ve been filming for the last 12 days straight. – 12 straight days
of power presenting in front of the camera. What are we coming
away with, 15 episodes? – 15 pieces, yeah. – 15 pieces of
content in 12 days. So looking back on
the whole year, Mario, which episode or location do
you think was your favorite? – Oh well, Alaska was such a
different environment for me. The animals are different,
the climate was different, everything about it. So I think that stands
out for me, Alaska, yeah. – Well definitely, I mean,
I think the craziest thing that happened to us in Alaska
was that bear encounter, where we ran into
that sow and her cubs on the side of river. I mean, talk about a real moment that you could never
plan to capture on camera that we got little
bits and pieces of and managed to put out that
episode, The Bear Scare. – Yeah I’ll never forget that. I remember hearing
you, that this is like, “Bear, bear.” And I’m like, “Am I getting
attacked by a bear?” (laughing) “Wait, is he getting
attacked by a bear?” – All right, so Mark what
was your favorite location or moment from this past year? – For me personally, it’s
actually unreleased video. You guys are gonna be
seeing it soon, the green and black poison frog has
been my favorite animal since I was nine years old. If Ms. Honeycutt’s out there,
I actually did a project in Science class on that frog. So getting to actually
be out here in Costa Rica and hold one, that’s
been a 23 year journey for that moment. So, for me that
was really special. So hopefully you guys
will like that episode, it’s gonna be coming soon,
but that’s my highlight. – Um hm, oh so many great
episodes are coming out of this trip here to Costa Rica. I probably have a favorite I
could pick out of this trip, but when I look back at
the year, I’d have to say that the wolverine
was my favorite. – [Mark] Um, hm, right, yeah. – As we expressed to you
guys in that episode, it has taken us so many
years to be able to get to Alaska, I got to
work with Steve Kroschel and get up close with
that amazing animal. It’s something I
will never forget and it was awesome. I mean, you talk about
our year on YouTube, the wolverine episode
premiered, trending as the number one video
the day after Thanksgiving. Which was amazing.
– Amazing. – A 30 minute video,
and that was you guys watching the video,
getting it to number one. I mean, we trended so
many times this past year and subscribers, all of you,
new members of the Coyote Pack. – Yeah.
– I mean Mark, what was the biggest day we had? – I think the velvet
ant sting day. – Yeah.
– I remember I was on a flight to Spain actually, and I was watching
our sub counter just
go ding, ding, ding. So, just so humbling that
that many people are jumping on board the Brave
Wilderness ship and watching all this great animal content. – And what was it? 342,000 new subscribers
in a single day? – In a single day. I think we got, there
was a million of you who joined in just a
period of three days. – Yeah, three days there
was 1.2 million new members of the Coyote Pack
in just three days. Now we do have some
cool stuff planned for you guys in 2017. First of all, we will
be traveling worldwide at this point. What’s our first location? – [Mark] We’re actually
going to be coming back to Costa Rica in January on
the west coast this time. So we’ll be bringing you
cool stuff from there. But what Mario and I are
really excited about, we’re going to Australia. So that’s.
– Oh man. Lots and lots of reptiles. – [Mark] Yeah,
it’s gonna be good. Lots of snakes, lots of lizards. – [Coyote] Lots of danger. – Lots of tide pools, all
kinds of cool, creepy crawlies to get in front of the camera.
– Yeah. – We’ve only explored
just one little part of the world so far.
– Yeah. – [Mario] I mean
the world is huge. – [Mark] North America. – [Mario] The animal
kingdom is huge. Like so many bizarre
creatures that we haven’t even come upon yet. – [Coyote] Um, hm.
– I’m excited. – Well I know, speaking
on behalf of myself and the entire crew,
both here in the field and in post production,
we couldn’t thank the audience more,
the Coyote Pack. You guys grow more and
more every single day. It inspires us to get
out here into the wild, take the risks that we
do, battling the elements of nature to get the
episodes right there in front of the lens,
and then eventually out to you guys on YouTube. And all I know is that
if we can come near to as close in 2017
as we did in 2016, it’s gonna be
another amazing year. You guys ready? – [Mario] Yeah.
– Let’s do it. – Let’s do it.
– All right. I’m Coyote Peterson,
be brave, stay wild. We’ll see you guys next year. – Woo!
– Woo, bullet ants! If you enjoyed our
end of the year video, make sure to go back and
watch my favorite episode of 2016, Phantom
of the Wilderness, featuring the wolverine. And don’t forget,
subscribe so you can join me and the crew on
our next location. No, no, no, no, no, no,
we’ve got meat and you, I need you to go this way. Go this way, okay I’ll
get behind the meat. (growling, crackling) (crashing pound, wolf howls) (birds chirp)

Can PEE Cure Ant Stings?!

Can PEE Cure Ant Stings?!


– I’m Coyote Peterson,
and I’m about to enter the strike
zone with the fire ant. You guys ready? Your shot good? – [Camerman] Yup. – One, two, three. Holy cow. Ow, ow! Holy cow that’s a lot
of stings already! Okay, I’m gonna have
take my hands out pretty quickly guys. – [Cameraman] You can do it man! – [Coyote] So much worse
than the harvester ants. – [Cameraman] You
got it, 30 seconds! – I can’t, I can’t, I
gotta stop, I gotta stop! (buzzer) – [Cameraman] You alright? Tell me what you’re feeling. – A lot of pain, ah! They’re still on me! (intense drumbeat) Nine, ten, 11, 12,
13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20,
21, 22, 23, 24, 25, oh hey, what’s up? 26, 27, 28, 29. – [Cameraman] Too many to count? – It’s too many to count. I’m about 30 just on my
hand here, I’m guessing I probably took somewhere
in the vicinity of 100 to 150 ant stings
can you see that? – [Cameraman] Yeah your
skin is like all tight. – My skin is tight,
swollen, and it itches and burns right now. Okay, so if you are
ever out in the wild, let’s say you’re out
there for a picnic, put your picnic
blanket right down on a mound of fire
ants, worse thing that could possibly happen, and you don’t have a
first aid kit with you, there’s a little simple
remedy that you can use. It’s kind of gross, but it’s
also kind of interesting. You can actually pee
on fire ant stings, to neutralize the sting. – [Cameraman] Wait what? – Yeah, you can actually pee. The ammonia in the pee will
actually the neutralize the stings and neutralize
some of the swelling. – [Cameraman] Okay, hold
on, wait, we can’t… I mean how are we gonna
have shots of this? – Well, I’m not gonna just
pee on my hands for you guys right here, I actually
brought with me, an entire bottle of Coyote pee. – [Cameraman] No you did not. – Yes I did. – [Cameraman] That is
colored water guys. – That is not colored
water, you wanna smell it? – [Cameraman] Mario! I need you to smell this. – [Cameraman] He says
he’s got a bottle of pee and I don’t believe him. – No I’m not gonna
make Mario smell it, I’ll smell it though. Yup that’s my pee, 100%. – [Cameraman] See now I
really don’t believe you. – Just smell it, you guys
can smell it at home. – [Cameraman] Ugh! – Yeah, gross right? I know, totally gross. It is a bottle of Coyote
pee, but believe it or not, the ammonia that is in
your pee will actually help to reduce the swelling
and neutralize the venom. So what I’m gonna do right now, as gross as it seems, is I’m going to
dump my own urine all over my arms and on
my hands, to try to reduce the swelling and the burning
from these fire ant stings. You ready? – [Cameraman] Not really. – Here we go… – [Cameraman] Hold on, I’m
gonna back up a couple steps. – I’m not gonna
splash you, come on! Alright you ready? – [Cameraman] Yeah, go for it. – [Coyote] Oh yeah that’s pee. And I left this bottle of pee
sitting in the sun all day, and I know this seems
incredibly gross, right, and it is, it’s super gross, I am literally rubbing
pee into my hands, and into my arms. But this is going to help keep
down the swelling from all of the stings. – [Cameraman] Do not pull my
leg, that wasn’t just a bottle of colored water? – Nope, that is pee,
that is pee 100%. That is pee. That is pee 100%. And I left this bottle of pee
sitting in the sun all day. Look at that, my hands have
actually totally cooled down, and I think that the urine, it’s brought out the bumps
in a little more definition, but I think that the swelling
is actually going down at this point. And it’s only been
a couple of seconds. I can tell you this
much, my arms are not burning at the moment. They still itch, but I
definitely feel like the urine is doing the trick. That’s pretty cool. – [Cameraman]
That’s pretty gross. – It is, I agree, that
was completely gross. Probably one of the grossest
things you guys have ever seen me do, but
hopefully this serves as a great example of
what to do if you ever find yourself in
this worst case scenario. I’m Coyote Peterson, be brave! Stay wild! We’ll see you next week. Now while the urine did
act as a temporary relief to my anguish, unfortunately
it did not completely stop the effects
of the ant venom. In total we counted
over 300 stings, and within 12 hours
of the fire ant swarm, my hands have swollen to
nearly double in size, and were covered in
unsightly white postulates. Moral of the story, do whatever you can
to avoid fire ants. If you thought this behind
the adventure was wild, make sure to go back and
watch the full episode. And don’t forget, subscribe,

Winter is Coming For These Argentine Ant Invaders | Deep Look

Winter is Coming For These Argentine Ant Invaders | Deep Look


Once upon a time, the Argentine ant seemed invincible. Why? Well normally, ants in different colonies
of the same species fight each other to the death for territory and food. But take an Argentine ant from a colony in
Japan, or Spain, or from your kitchen, put ‘em together and… Nothing happens. They recognize each other by smell. Just like
these nest mates. Worldwide, Argentine ants act like a huge,
international super colony. Countless nests, each home to hundreds of
queens, producing millions of highly disposable workers. Massive Argentine ant super-colonies are spreading
all over the globe, overwhelming local ant populations. They can take down much bigger ants. Like
this harvester. The tiny Argentines throw themselves at their
enemy. Exhaust her. Then slowly pull her apart. They seemed unstoppable. But there’s more to this story. The Argentine ant has an Achilles heel. At Jasper Ridge, near Stanford University,
Nicole Heller has been tracking ant populations since the late 1990s. She wanted to know, how long would it take
for Argentines to completely overwhelm the native species here? One year? Five? But it didn’t happen. To her surprise, one native species was actually
thriving behind enemy lines. The winter ant. Winter ants aren’t much bigger than Argentine
ants. They aren’t much stronger. But they have a secret weapon. Put Argentine and winter ants together near
something they both want, like this cotton ball soaked in honey. See how the winter ant aims its abdomen at
the Argentine? And that little white dot appears right at the tip? And how the Argentine scurries away? No one had ever seen this before. In fact,
as far as we know, this is the first time anyone’s caught it on camera. No one knows yet what exactly it is, but this secretion can repel, even kill, those Argentine workers. At Jasper Ridge, this little drop has been enough to halt an implacable invader’s march toward world domination. Hi, it’s Amy. See how these ants all tap
each other when they go by? Well when ants touch antenna, they’re not
just exchanging information…they ARE the information. They switch jobs based on how
many other ants they run into doing the same thing. Join our ant army. Subscribe. Tap that button and we’ll let

PINCHED! by a Giant Beetle!

PINCHED! by a Giant Beetle!


(playful music) – You guys see that? That’s a stag beetle. Right now I’m On
Location in Costa Rica, working on some of
my animal facts, because yes I do research
before I actually get on camera. I look over there at the balcony
railing, and what do I see. A giant stag beetle that must
have flown in last night, they’re attracted to lights, and he decided to make himself
a perch right over there. Now, I haven’t been bitten and stung by that many
things on this trip. I picked him up, and look
at that set of pinchers. And I said to myself, hmm, you know who would
love to see this? Everyone out there
in the coyote pack. I’m pretty curious as
to how hard this beetle can actually pinch. Now they don’t use those
pinchers to catch and kill prey, but they’re actually
used as defense and during mating displays
to attract the ladies. That is a mighty set of
pinchers right there. Let’s go for this. Are you ready? (adventurous music) Alright, so,
without further ado, let’s find how just how hard
the stag beetle can pinch. I’m going to let him
go for my pinky finger. Here we go, are you ready? I’m Coyote Peterson, and I’m about to enter the
strike zone with a stag beetle. One… Two… Three. (pained gasp) Dang that hurt. – [Voiceover] Was it bad? – Yeah, he poked a little
hole in the top of my finger. And I think he popped a little
puncture on the other side. At least he didn’t pinch and, hold on, let’s try
it one more, ready? What I’m actually being chomped
by is a Mallodon Beetle, which is in the same
superfamily as the stag beetle, and with over 35,000 members, it’s tough to know
them all apart. – [Voiceover] Yeah, do
you want us to hold it? – [Voiceover] Be tight on him,
because he won’t expect it. – [Voiceover]
Alright, ready Coyote? What are we doing now? – Okay so now, I’m going to
be pinched by the stag beetle on my pinky finger,
of all places. – [Voiceover] How many times
have you been pinched already? – Four. – [Voiceover] Why are we
doing this a fifth time? – Because we haven’t
gotten the shot right. – [Voiceover] And why is that? – Because I’m scared
to get pinched again. (prolonged pained gasps) Can you see that? – [Voiceover] How was that bad? Was that really bad? Oh, yeah. He got you man. Good job Mario. (slow-motion pained gasps) – Well, I guess what we have
found out is the stag beetle… Has got quite the pinch! He popped holes in my pinky. Alright buddy, I know
that was a lot of stress, we’re going to let
you go now but, I guess we’ll add the stag
beetle to the list of creatures that have chomped, pinched,
stung, or mauled Coyote. I’m Coyote Peterson,
be brave, stay wild. We’ll see you on
the next location. (dramatic music) – [Voiceover] If you

Beetle looked painful, check out my encounter

10 Bug Bites You Need To Be Able to Identify

10 Bug Bites You Need To Be Able to Identify


You feel a sharp pain and then look down
all of a sudden on your arm you see a red mark could this fight be dangerous
or is it totally safe that’s the question many people ask when
they’re bitten by a bark watch this and say goodbye to mysterious red marks on
your body with this information you’ll be able to spot exactly what bug has
bitten you and if it’s dangerous or safe I’m Charlie and today we’re going to
look at ten bug bites you need to be able to identify birth before he gets
bitten too much why not subscribe and press the notification bell – coming up
first we have Hornet Hornets are also known as the Asian wasp but they can be
found in Europe Russia North America and Northeast Asia many people swat these
away thinking that there was Orbeez but actually they’re far more dangerous in
fact every year 1,100 people passed away due to hornet stings they can be very
dangerous and must be treated immediately
especially if it’s on a child but how can you identify a Hornet sting well the
area around where you’ve been stung will become a very swollen and red this will
cover a large area around where you’ve been stung you may even get blisters
forming on your skin where you’ve been stung the person who’s been stung will
also likely be in a very bad pain it will be far more extreme and painful
than a wasp or bee sting Hornets can sometimes be double the size
of a wasp or bee and because of this hornets can store a lot of poison inside
them when you’re stung that poison goes into your body the poison contains two
very harmful elements acetylcholine and histamine histamine can cause extreme
itching it also can affect your brain spinal cord and uterus that’s why if
you’ve been stung and feel cold in the limbs then that this could have been
Hornet also if your ears and lips go blue this is another bad sign you may
also have breathing problems if you’re stung by a Hornet and if this happens
make sure you see a doctor right away next up is bedbug I’m sure some of you
are watching this in bed well if so then you need to be very cautious of bedbugs
the real name for bedbugs is mitosis but they’re called bedbugs
because they’re often found in mattresses they feed on humans blood
usually when you’re asleep but most people who are bitten by bedbugs don’t
even know they have bedbugs that’s because at first sight a bedbug
bite can look like the bite of a flea or mosquito some also mistake them for
allergic reactions your skin will get red swollen and also become quite itchy
but there’s a way to tell if you’re being bitten by bedbugs the bites will
all be very close to each other and they’ll kind of look like little roads
on the skin this meaning that they’ll kind of be in a rectangular or curved
shape and go down or up bedbug bites can be very painful much more than a
mosquito bones if you think you have bedbugs the best bed is to clean your
bed with a vacuum and if that doesn’t work maybe call a bug removal expert
next up is plague you may not have heard of a clegg before but it’s basically a
big fat flying Clegg’s are also known as horse flies the nasty thing about horse
fly is it can bite humans and it feeds on their blood they’re kind of like the
vampires of the insect world unlike a house fly these are brown instead of
black but what do these bites look like they’re actually very easy to spot
because at first it will be a 1 millimeter red spot you may not even
notice it at first but eventually it will begin to get very swollen and itchy
it can then be very very painful much more painful than a mosquito bites
now the bites themselves aren’t that dangerous after all they’re only
drinking a tiny amount of your plant but Clegg’s can transmit various different
diseases one of these is called tularemia this can affect your eyes
lymph nodes and lungs and it can also transmit anthrax this can cause pain
while swallowing and terrible nausea so if you get a click bite you may want to
go to the doctor next up is tick tick bites are very very hard to spot because
many assume it’s an allergic reaction and not a bite the weird thing about
ticks is they actually go into your body over time they grow bigger and bigger
and they drink your blood in fact ticks can live in a human body
for a long time also ticks can infect people
various diseases so what does the text byte look like well it’s basically a
large red mark and it’s sometimes as they ring around that mark if you’re
able to remove a tick from your body but the red mark doesn’t go away and
continues to grow you need to see a doctor right away that’s because you
could have been infected within TEFL Isis or Borelli olace next up is louse
everyone knows about head lice but did you know that they can also bite you
louse bites are small red dots which appear in places where your hair grows
these can appear on your back fairly hands or legs the bites are usually a
few inches away from each other and the skin looks like it was pierced maybe
with a nail or a pin now you may think that these are pretty harmless but they
are not lies can transmit very serious diseases like typhoid and trench fever
next up is flea many people mistake flea bites for allergies but the way to spot
them is that they will be red and swollen you’ll be able to tell this is
not a mosquito bite or an allergic reaction as it will be very painful also
it will itch a lot please usually go for a person’s legs and it happens when
they’re asleep also fleas can buy to you many times in
similar places the bites are usually around one inch away from each other and
also fleas can transmit infections on to use so maybe see a doctor if you have a
lot of flea bites next up is and so ants are very annoyed in the summer they may
ruin your picnics or go into your pantries but did you know that ants can
also buy to you and I don’t just mean red ants in Indiana Jones I mean typical
black ants an ant bite will look like a very small red dot it’s maybe totally
painless and it may not even inch on the other hand red fire ants can cause you a
lot of trouble and be a real danger these bites can look like large white
head pimples also red fire ants contain a lot of toxins which can put you into a
shock so make sure you know the difference between a regular ant bite
and a red fire ant fire next up is mosquito depending on where
you live I’m sure that in the summer you encounter mosquitoes they’re incredibly
annoying and love to bite humans mosquito bites will be red and swollen
they mostly appear in open areas of your body where you’re not wearing clothes
also it will happen where your skin is very thin as is trying to get to your
blood vessels when they bite you they also inject their saliva into the wound
this saliva causes your blood to get thinner which makes the skin red and
itchy better get that mosquito spray out this summer next up is be one thing many
people don’t realize about bee stings is that you need to remove the sting unlike
a wasp but bees actually lose their stinger when it goes into you right
after that the bee passes away instantly once the sting has been removed from
your skin it will likely get red and swollen if you’re not allergic then you
should be fine but if you are then you could have breathing problems and should
see a doctor and finally on the list we have wasps wasps are like a bee sting
but you won’t usually need to remove the sting from your skin the stung area will
become red and also swollen later on you also may feel a burning and itchy
sensation unlike a bee sting wasps can sting you multiple times but unless
you’re allergic you should be okay after a wasp sting but now it’s time to make
your voice hurt vote in the poll in the top right corner how many of these
insects you’ve been stung by if it’s all ten then I feel really bad for you if
