Bullet ants

Bullet ant, the ant with the most painful sting, it feels like being shot. Young men from the Satere-Mawe tribe who want to become warriors have to put on a glove with hundreds of the ants, they have to keep it on for 10 minutes. They have to put the glove back on another 20 more times before they are said strong enough to become warriors.
