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.
