  • Please please talk about the Amazon rain forest right now if you can afford to. Even if just a short announcement to inform people. I know a full video isn't a possibility and is too much to ask, but some form of announcement would help a lot if you guys can. Thank you if you get to read this comment.

  • In a million years ants will evolve to build guns and nukes and destroy the world if we haven't already

  • I saw one of these Wars in real life

  • Being nomadic warrior tribes, army ants are kind of the ant dothraki.

  • So much for "humans are the only species that violently kills others of their kind". Not that it feels great to know this ._.

  • This video about ANTS was so epic. I liked it so much I watched it till the very last second to extend watchtime

  • 3:52 This is the ant that didn't show up when they said "be there or be square."

  • That is called TEAM WORK

  • Да это жёстко)

  • Pls who is reading my comment could you give me a link for a German version. Have a good day!

  • They say videogames cause violence, but look at what these ants have teached us.

  • Antvengers, assemble!

  • Does anyone know what Kurzgesagt means I think it’s German but it could also be a tricky scientific word

    • It means "put briefly", "put shortly" or literally "said shortly" in German. In German we usually will say something like: "kurz gesagt, ..." at the beginning of a summary or conclusion. You might also use it in a situation where in English you'd write tl;dr

    • It means "short review"

  • When will the next video about ants

  • Are they kissing? hahahaa

  • 働き蟻は、我々よりブラックな企業に勤めてるのか…

  • Could you make a video about God of Chaos, said to pass nearby the earth in 10 years?

  • And yet us humans squish them with ease

  • Merci pour les sous-titre en Français.

  • Could you expose the possibility that the universe isn't infinite but very big and by studing explosions in space could help us with the Big Bang

  • I would watch 100 episodes of this. Just covering as many species of ants as possible.

  • Wow, what a great video. Thank you!

  • My God! Your channel is asome, full of knowledge and interesting things! Suscribed, you deserve millions more!
