Fire Ants Take on a Swarm of Maggots | WARNING: Extremely Gross Footage (Halloween Special Pt. 1)
Fire Ants vs. Maggots: What happens when a swarm of seething maggots take over a turkey carcass that a colony of fire ants (The Fire Nation) have been working on? Well, this is truly one of the grossest videos I've ever had to film on this channel, and as a scoleciphobe (fear of worms), there were points of screaming! But in the end, it made for a very interesting and educational video about one of the most important processes of nature. Hope you enjoy this week's episode! Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution. #FireAnts #Maggots #Halloween
