Coyote Peterson Allows Himself to Endure the Painful Sting of the Tarantula Hawk Wasp

The educationally masochistic Brave Wilderness host Coyote Peterson resumed his countdown to the most painful insect sting. This time, Peterson allowed himself to be stung with the second most painful stick from the tarantula hawk wasp he caught before being attacked by jumping cholla cacti.

Boasting the world’s 2nd most painful sting, the Tarantula Hawk also happens to be the largest species of wasp in North America! These enormous spider wasps are most notorious for their macabre breeding habits but are also becoming well known for their ranking on the insect sting pain index. Only trailing in behind the bullet ant in terms of “sting pain” Coyote felt it necessary to experience this fear inducing sting before taking on the highly anticipated bullet ant challenge.
