Bullet Ants and Tripods
Luís, our guide, has been bitten by bullet ants seven times in his life. And they're called bullet ants because that's what it feels like to get bitten. So of course Luís prodded a nest of bullet ants for us with that tripod he is shown holding here to show us what they sound like when they're angry.
