The moment has finally arrived, where wildlife expert Coyote Peterson has fulfilled his quest to work his way up the insect sting pain index until he reaches the bullet ant.
The bullet ant is considered to have the most painful insect sting in the world which feels like ‘being shot by a gun and last for over 24 hours’—Coyote has been getting stung by various creatures and now he takes on the top one. Ouch.
We live in uncertain times, this much is certain. Times when no one it seems—not politicians, not your neighbour, not even your know-it-all work colleague—knows what Britain leaving the European Union will actually mean.

Coyote Peterson hosts nature web show Breaking Trail and he was in Costa Rica’s remote Osa Peninsula at night looking for reptiles and amphibians, when an ocelot attacked! Kind of.
