    JUNGLE vs. FIRE ANTS! OMG! Fire ants are on a whole different level! They are a force to reckon with in the ecosystems they belong to, are super aggressive and sting, and can even float on water! They are the true kings (or queens rather) of the jungle! Join me as I recreate the fire ant motherland, the Amazon rain forest, in a massive South American biotope paludarium, complete with flowing river and both native Amazonian plants and creatures, in order to provide a new and fitting home for our ravenous and aggressive Fire Nation (red tropical fire ants). Watch how we put this incredible half terrarium-half aquarium habitat together! How will our fire ants deal with the move into this new home? Hope you enjoy this week's episode and debut of the Selva de Fuego!

    *Correction: I discovered after creating this video that the Assassin Snail (Clea helena) is actually native to Southeast Asia, not South America, so I will be swapping it out with a Channeled Apple Snail (Pomacea canaliculata), which is native to South America.

    Just saying, but the Amazon river is located at Brazil (more than 90% of it) and in there they speak Portuguese, so the name should be "Selva de Fogo", loved your video, keep doing the good work

                        I don’t know if this guy is ever snowboarding or jumped off a bridge into water but the amount of excitement and drama is a bit nauseating. Not to mention the emotional pauses.

Like, I'm extremely passionate about it for some reason. is he still alive? what is he called now? do you think he'll be ok with me calling him Henry? or her, henry can be a girl, I love her/him either way. please update me on their current status, I need to know! Kindest regards, Bella
