Fire Ant

Episode Six Time! In honor or making it three episodes past the third episode Dylan has decided to review an insect! Does that even count as an animal??

You’ll discover why Fire Ants are such a pest, how much they (might) weigh if you got all of them together, and whether or not they would be able to take you on in a fight. No spoilers here, you’ll have to listen to find out yourself. All of that and the reveal of community surveys so you can rank the Fire Ant and more yourselves! It’s the sixth-iest episode you’ve ever seen!
