    Today we watch the drama unfold as we introduce some giant tropical millipedes (Orthomorpha coarctata) into our Hacienda Del Dorado, a terrarium that is home to the 'Golden Empire', a huge colony of yellow crazy ants (Anoplolepis gracilipes). The action was heart-stopping!

      Your too emotional for nature when we saw those cockroaches die you shouldn’t be sad nature goes on I think something like that happened millions of times in nature them dying is a normal part of life and you should probably be used to it you feed the corpses of dead animals to the ants what if the animal wanted to be buried at sea huh anyway you shouldn’t feel like the death of the animals are your fault unless you kill them by your own hands that’s all.

        Those millipedes are badass looking with those spikes on their backs. Like little dragons

                      I used to like just watching ants outside, like i'd go and sit outside in the sun for a healthy dose of vitamin D and just watch the little scouts run by. But i've never really been.. INTERESTED in ants. They were just necessary outside bugs. But they way you narrate and showcase your bugs, your ants.. i only encountered you late last night but now i'm INVESTED.

                                      A story here, it may be long but it's worth it :)
                                      I saw a snake once, it jumped out and scared me terribly, (Most likely because it was a black snake amidst yellow grass and bright flowers.) I didn't move. It looked very weak and unhealthy. And then it got near my foot. I was wearing boots at the time so it couldn't hurt but venom was still a risk. I didn't know what species it was. I also didn't want to hurt it. And then just when I thought we could part ways and I could go back to what I was doing. I saw three or four millipedes burst out of the snake. One by one out of various different places. I was Gazing in sheer horror and mild curiosity. But my God, that was an experience like no other. Just seeing those things covered in blood emerge and the snake head leap up and snarl. I was shocked completely.

                                          What’s funny is millipedes have tough armer and most have deadly gas and liquid and they are only herbivores add a centipede next - RIP ants

                                            If you had put those millipedes in with fire ants they wouldn't have lasted ten seconds.

                                                          All done with no thoughts or hesitation on top of it!!!! Pure, mindless and balls to the wall ruthlessness unequalled on the planet. Similar to zombies if they were real I would guess..... Ants can be a dangerous thing!!! At about 4 or 5 and only what? 40 inches tall? I fell in a fire ant pit big enough to swallow that size, instantly swarmed and only a couple inches left uncovered by these big ass Texas buggers!!!! If my mom wasn't smart and brave enough to snatch me and run me to a tub to spray down all of em, they would have most likely killed me in minutes!!!! I will NEVER forget that kinda pain and attack, probably top 3 most formidable creatures on earth. Folks think we're on that list, not even close! Humans are unbelievably pathetic and defenseless when compared to anything else! No claws, teeth couldn't scare a bird, no hearing, sight, smell! No fur protection, no nothing! Take away the brain and we die off in less than 100 years! Easy! Even jellyfish are better equipped than us, they have no brain, no nervous system, only a couple organs, no bones, virtually nothing!!! Still better and stronger than us pathetic animals! It's a weird concept, but it works, kinda.....I guess. No, not really. Too much destruction from humans wanting gas and phones for distraction of an actual life. Nearly ALL we've done is fucked and horrible for our own survival, oh well, must see tv is on, see ya!!!
