Henchlings, I wanted to make sure you know who Coyote Peterson is. When I first encountered Coyote on Breaking Trail, I didn’t really know what to make of him. Now, I understand how he is excellent at his job. But, make no mistake, he is the next Steve Irwin. And by that I mean someone who is goofy, likeable and awesome, will become world famous and die in a spectacular manner doing what he is passionate about. I know it’s a weird thing to say, so I will move on…

Coyote gallivants through the world talking about animals in a very accessible way. It is obvious that the animals he handles recognize him as a great human (animals are like that). Coyote offers his limbs for animals and insects to chew on, just so we know what to expect, and, perhaps what critters to run away from. This format is perfect for Youtube. Coyote and his crew are excellent at getting amazing footage in high definition of all the animals he encounters. There is immense educational value in his videos or you can simply enjoy them for the entertainment factor.

I loved the video which is more about the process than the product. Man those ants are HUUUUUGE. And this one is about a chance encounter that is beyond adorable.
