    Ok can I just say what a great idea this is? Making a very educational series with a fun twist that makes it more appealing to a lot of kids. I applaud you man! YouTube needs more channels like this

    Edit: Just to clarify I'm not saying this is exclusively for kids. But the layout of explaining it as if it was a game does help capture the interest of a younger audience. Of course it's also extremely entertaining for adults as well :)

      This Channel should be shown in schools when trying to teach stuff like the environment or animals.

      Hugo Gojibiter ironfist I'm pretty sure he built off of casually explained and his evolution videos because he has commented on some of his videos and his channel was made after the videos were released. Regardless of whether or the concept of describing creatures using video game terms is his alone I'm so glad he was able to create this channel

                        Can you make a microscopic tier list?

                        What are your ratings for Hydras, Rotifera, etc.

                        Protozoa and bacteria and virus maybe even?

                        Some fungi or plant builds?

                          Interesting reveal in the end about how people 'surprisingly' (not to me) have their channel blow up. I mean, the content is good, but in our sad world effective marketing makes all the difference, and when I say effective, I mean caving to the indecency level coerced by the system. It's easier for some than for others. Blissful ignorance helps. But this all comes with a karmic burden. Nothing comes for free.

                              I hate that crustaceans are basically water insects. I hear tarantula tastes a lot like crab. We really should be eating bugs. I kind of hate this train of thought.

                                                I know this video has aged, but do you find pistol or mantis shrimps any better than standard crabs and lobsters. I’m just curious
