    JUNGLE vs. FIRE ANTS! OMG! Fire ants are on a whole different level! They are a force to reckon with in the ecosystems they belong to, are super aggressive and sting, and can even float on water! They are the true kings (or queens rather) of the jungle! Join me as I recreate the fire ant motherland, the Amazon rain forest, in a massive South American biotope paludarium, complete with flowing river and both native Amazonian plants and creatures, in order to provide a new and fitting home for our ravenous and aggressive Fire Nation (red tropical fire ants). Watch how we put this incredible half terrarium-half aquarium habitat together! How will our fire ants deal with the move into this new home? Hope you enjoy this week's episode and debut of the Selva de Fuego!

    *Correction: I discovered after creating this video that the Assassin Snail (Clea helena) is actually native to Southeast Asia, not South America, so I will be swapping it out with a Channeled Apple Snail (Pomacea canaliculata), which is native to South America.

                                              I tricked an ant by putting one candy in the table. And when the ant left to call its troops i removed the candy so if he come back with its troops ...they will tell the ant who saw the candy that hes a liar.

                                                  1. How big is that tank?
                                                  2. Are the ants not going to kill the fish/the fish kill the ants? 😲
                                                  3.. Tell me you were offered a job somewhere. I. Can't. Stop. 😍🤗😂🤣

                                                                                            Cory's actually don't like gravel or pebbles. They like sand. Pebbles and stones are bad for their whiskers, and they can't dig into them like they like to do in sand.
                                                                                            So I'm pretty sure they will not "come to love" the pebbles, as you said in the video.
