    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.

    Once I was in Kentucky and I say bright orange ants with huge heads. Not just one but hundreds. Luckily they didn’t get on me but they scared me.

    When I was a kid there was a ant hill at the school playground and unknown to me it was fire ants and some other kid dared me to kick it. I decided to run and kick it but I slipped first and felled on the ant hill but first, I was wearing shorts with no underwear. I didn’t have a choice I had to lose the shorts.

    I’ve been binge watching your videos just like I said I would, and even introduced your channel to some friends and my boyfriend who all LOVE IT! Weve all agreed that your narration is very soothing and you just have the perfect voice for it 👌! What you’ve done with these enclosures is absolutely incredible and extremely impressive!! My boyfriend and I love anime, so naming the fire ants the Fire Nation is just so awesome 👏!!
