The sting of this ant sends this guy to the ground in pain.
Coyote Peterson has been on a strange but interesting journey to experience some of the worst insect stings the world has to offer.
Last month we shared with you his (also painful) experience with the tarantula hawk wasp. Now he’s back, and this time, he’s letting the ferocious-looking bullet ant sting him. This huge ant is said to have the most painful insect sting on the planet.
We’re not exactly sure why anyone would willingly do this to themselves, but it’s certainly entertaining to watch!
That is one big and nasty ant! I’d never heard of the bullet ant before this video. And after watching it, I’m glad they don’t live here in the U.S.! Did you see the way his skin and muscles tightened after that sting?
We’re not exactly sure what motivates a man to take on a challenge of painful insect encounters like this, but we thank you for educating and bringing us along on the adventures Coyote. We’re just glad it was you and not us!
