When Coyote Peterson and his crew from Brave Wilderness dive into a subject, they pull out all the stops. In fact, you might say they go a little too far.

Take this footage, for example. Instead of just hanging out near a few leafcutter ants and telling us about their habits, he let them do their destructive thing…on his hand. Consider yourselves warned, people, because this is seriously gross.

His methods aren’t exactly conventional, but you can’t really say you didn’t learn something, right? And there’s more where that came from! Want to see him play with a wild baby ocelot? Here you go! If you still can’t get enough, be sure to follow Brave Wilderness on YouTube. His passion for animals is infectious.
