  1. Pretty sure I’m not the first one to say this…..but it’s not an insect if it has than 6 legs. What illacmi tobini would be is an arthropod.

  2. I think they discovered a species of snake this year that has what looks like a tarantula attached to its tail, which they use to lure in birds to eat.

  3. Damn the presenters on this channel chat so much shit. For the section with the ants she talked more about fucking game of thrones than the actual ants she was supposed to be talking about. Pure garbage

  4. they should have stopped by my home country of jamaica and they would have found a lot of centipede (we called them forty legs) we have small , medium and even larger than that one and not to mention there bites horrible
