In the latest episode of his “Breaking Trail” nature series, animal expert and adventurer Coyote Peterson follows up getting intentionally stung by bullet ant by traveling back to Costa Rica to experience the arguably equally (if not more) painful sting of a warrior wasp. Skip to the 13 minute mark for the sting.
“What started as a simple curiosity with Harvester Ant stings has now evolved and captured the world’s attention in one man’s quest to document the most painful insect stings from around the globe. Now in what may be his final pain index challenge ever, Coyote takes on the infamous sting of none other than the Warrior Wasp!
The Warrior Wasp, a beautiful iridescent blue paper wasp, lives in the dense jungles of Central and South America. Their stunning appearance is well complemented by their elaborate nests that adorn the rainforest canopies and can house hundreds of these winged insects. However don’t let their beauty fool you, these speedy wasps pack a seriously powerful punch that can cause major injury and even death when swarmed in high numbers.”
