Fire Ants vs. My Arm

Click here to SUBSCRIBE:
Fire ants are truly a dangerous insect when in huge numbers, especially these red tropical fire ants native to the Amazon! This week, I went into the Selva de Fuago, my massive tropical paludarium, home to my pet fire ant colony. They were aggressive and stung me for hours, but in the end, the final design of their habitat was all worth the stings. I most especially love the feature shown at the end of this video! Hope you guys enjoy this week's episode featuring the Fire Nation, the most famous and fierce ant colony on this channel.
Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

  • I was watching some of your older videos about your fire ant habitat. Specifically the one where you added the pentagon thing to increase living space. And that got me wondering. If you wanted to own a fire ant colony, would you have to continue increasing their living space forever? I mean if your adding space every couple of weeks how is it that sustainable? How do you keep them from eventually needing that entire bedroom of space? I also I really enjoy your videos. I have no desire to own a colony but I like learning and just came across your videos. I am now very intrigued and surprised about all the information you’ve given. Seems these tiny little guys take a lot of dedication.
