The host of the Brave Wilderness YouTube Channel/Show, Coyote Peterson, has made quite the name for himself over the past few years. He’s done this by volunteering to allow the most terrifying creatures in nature to sting him. If you’re looking to skip ahead in this video the sting itself occurs around the 12:50 mark.
If you’re not familiar with the Bullet Ant then all you need to know is this tiny creature’s believed to have the most painful sting of any insect in the world. As the name implies, the pain from a Bullet Ant sting is so excruciating it’s akin to being shot by a gun. Furthermore, the crippling pain from a Bullet Ant sting lasts for 24-hours, leaving the victim incapacitated and writhing in pain the entire time. Why anyone would ever voluntarily be stung by a Bullet Ant is beyond me. You are basically signing up to experience the worst pain imaginable. Why not just sign a waiver and let someone shoot you in the fatty part of your leg or arm? In that situation, you can at least tell people you’ve been shot by a gun. Coyote can’t lay stake to that claim, no, he has to tell people that he was once stung by a tiny ant with a sting so powerful it feels like being shot by a gun.
