    Oh, I see how it is. When these bugs do chemical warfare it’s “really cool” and “a marvel of evolution,” but when I do it, it’s a “war crime” and I’m “on trial for violation of the Geneva Convention.”

    I read many, years ago, an article about the chemical defences of termites. The nasutes are the most well known but there were many others. Including a species where individuals blew themselves up to defend the nest. This would make for ab interesting episode.

    WhiteHazeGruntz5 months ago

    I dont think beetles r prey for cats either. Now cats will play n kill it probably but most likely not eat it n henceforth if its not for food its not a prey item of that species. U r so dumb. Last 3 videos i seen proves it. Humans have a issue with knowing enough to think they know they r right but not knowing enough to know they r wrong. I myself suffer with it like everyone else. Sadly u probably think ur fully right in ur video but ive found mis information n have questioned some of ur info as i dont clearly remember. So remove n fix all videos or put a post n mention u had a mistake as u rushed to me video!

    1:15 n u didnt mention the truely amazing n fascinating ability of the bombadar beetle. Its the only creature in the world that can do that trick i believe. N that is they can mix to chemicals in there body n litterally to explode

    Hi Danielle please forgive me if I spelled your name incorrectly. I am a fan and low key have a crush on you! I have a question. How did the Bombabeer Beertle evolve into what it is and what did it evolve from? It seems like the way chems mix inside of it to make a bomb just wouldnt work if it didnt have its exact body design. It seems like its design was made specifically for what it can do and what it can do was made possibly specifcally because of its design. Can you explain this?

    What's with this new format you guys are using for the show? What was wrong with the old one? It feels like these episodes are half informative, half useless film fragments from before the war and an awful amount of trippy retro effects. Cut the crap, I'm not watching this to get a seizure or an aneurysm
