My Arm vs. Thousands of Weaver Ants

  zhlédnutí 547,493


Před 11 měsíci

I have to stick my arm into my aggressive weaver ants' terrarium in order to do some maintenance, and it was a very dangerous venture. In doing so, I seized the opportunity while the terrarium was opened to improve the territories by adding more soil creatures and making the lands much more bioactive. In today's episode, we also visit the floating islands of Avista in order to do maintenance, restore a dead tree, and add a brand new island. Hope you enjoy this week's intense episode! Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution. #WeaverAnts #BigHeadedAnts #Trees

I’m glad to say that I have been watching your channel long enough to know that I wanted one of your ant farms. So guess what. I went to your website and bought the 2.0 hybrid gear kit terrarium.

@AntsCanada You were exactly right... When you pre-crush the "prey", you're taking away any chance they'd have at a natural life.

Have you ever thought to do the maintenance while it rains cuz I'm pretty sure the ants would be preoccupied by trying to save The brood instead of attacking you

Hey AC „Headmaster“ 😉 could you please add the video where you explained what finally happens to the Bobbleheads to the Boobleheads youtube playlist? I believe I watched a video where you mentioned them a while ago, but now that I revisited them I couldn’t find it 😳 I love that you have playlists grouped by species or at least by colony. I truly love your videos and I plan on creating my own AC Setup after finishing my masters degree. I hope you have a great day. (sadly you probably won’t ever read this, but in case you do: Ant love, forever! 🐜 ❤️ ♾ )

Also screw the people who'd cancel you for letting your ants live in something closer to their natural habitat and state of life, this vivarium is a great idea!

I don’t know why ppl freak out over the “ live feeding “ where if you see this in the wild would be any different , this way of feeding keeps the ants active and healthy so if you ask me let them hunt and live the way they would in nature

Wouldn’t it be awesome if he made an ant embassy in the middle of the room where all the ants could go and form alliances and stuff I know that’s highly unlikely but it would be cool if they all formed alliances pooled resources and shared food etc.

Forscythe80 Před 6 měsíci
If you watch a nature doco where the lion kills the gazelle, how do you view this? Good or bad. Or both. Or neither? If the gazelle is caught, it dies, and maybe baby gazelles lose a parent (or parents lose their young depending on which one is the victim). But the lion lives, and so does the lions cubs. If the gazelle escapes, this is good, it gets to live. But then the cubs might starve, as might the lion parent. Is this not also good/bad/both/neither? It's nature. Good, evil, morality etc, its all human concepts. Nature doesn't give a damn about justice, fairness, niceness, morality etc. I personally don't have moral objections to 'live feeding' if it assists the ecosystem overall. If it makes it as natural as possible, then wouldn't this be the "best" way?

Sorry, but I’ve always wondered, why does he never wear anything on his arms? Like, it’d be helpful I assume. Use gloves, something with sleeves, and then baby powder. I also know that he lives in one of the hottest and worst climates for long sleeves, but I know it’s be bearable, at least, more so than a million bites.

I grew up in Southeast Asia and when I was 6, I got bitten really badly by giant weaver ants (2-3 times larger than the ones on this video). It was so awful. I wasn’t told to not play near the mango trees 😭😭 I had countless bites on my arms and legs are cried for the whole day.
