What Happens When Guy is Stung by Cow-Killing Insect
It doesn't tickle.
This is Coyote
and as a part of his Brave Wilderness series, he lets nature bite and sting him so you don't have to.
For this episode, Coyote lets a Velvet Ant sting him. The stinger is circled.
Velvet Ants are actually a type of wasp and the pain from their sting is said to be so bad it can kill a cow.
First Coyote tries trapping the Velvet Ant against his skin to incite a sting.
When that doesn't work, he holds the ant with special bug-holding tweezers against his arm.
After screaming in pain for 30 minutes, Coyote has a big rash on his arm as the result of the sting.
Do not do this at home, as Coyote had a team of trained professionals with him. No bugs were harmed in the making of this video.
