Bullet ant stings?

by sikbitz


Seeing as Coyote Peterson has worked his way up the Schmidt sting pain index and will soon be facing his biggest challenge yet (the sting/bite of a bullet ant) I decided to take a look at other videos of people getting stung by them to see what could be expected.

The videos i’ve found below show the coming-of-age ceremony of the Sateré-Mawé people, who live deep in the Amazon. They essentially fill gloves with bullet ants and you have to put your hands inside them for 10 or so minutes until you can take them off again.

As you can see the people from the tribe handle these very well which is a stark contrast to your regular westerner..

Bear in mind that coyote peterson will probably only be getting stung by ONE bullet ant!
