I Bought a Forest to Protect The Ants Living Within It

58 000 Weergaven 806K

The day has come! I decided to buy a forest to celebrate the channel hitting 4M subscribers, and it's truly a magical place to explore. The richness of biodiversity is mind-blowing, and I managed to find several ants there that I've never seen before. Aside from fulfilling my hopes of us finding a new species of ant, I also hoped that the forest would serve a greater purpose. I also have another bigger surprise to share in this video, which is super exciting! Happy 4M subscribers, AC Family! Hope you enjoy this week's episode. Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

    I don't think ants are a pests when they in nature but they can be annoying when invading the sugar supply of the kitchen, i used to pick up ladybugs and dung beetles (which translate to trash beetles in my language) as a child and spiders too are okay but the one insects i absolutely hate are cockroaches, those annoying stinky, disgusting, fast-breeding insects that have been here for 300 millions years and more just won't stop scavenging and invading the homes of us humans, they just come through exposed holes and invade and i find myself hunting roaches almost every night, the good thing is big ones are extremely rare and most are small ones with no problem to take care of. Stupid roaches ruin everything.
