  5. Early Access Gaming on November 26, 2020 at 9:25 pm

    Microscope a snakes fangs shooting venom and what the tip of the fang looks like under microscope

  6. lσт on November 26, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    Seeing Dr. Seymour talk about his excitement and passion for science put such a big smile on my face.

  7. Caden Minehart on November 26, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    watching this now after i got stung by a jellyfish amazes me

  8. chadly312 on November 26, 2020 at 9:29 pm

    PSA: this may be a trigger for (ex) addicts.

  9. Guilherme Almeida on November 26, 2020 at 9:29 pm

    Thanks. I already hated jellyfish, now I hate them even more and I know why.

  10. Ismael Bey on November 26, 2020 at 9:30 pm

    This is still interesting even 6 years later.

  11. Second Grader on November 26, 2020 at 9:31 pm

    Dr Seymour is so passionate with his work, i love his energy

  12. Vulkhard Muller on November 26, 2020 at 9:32 pm

    I dream of being that enthused about my career

  13. Herp Derp on November 26, 2020 at 9:33 pm

    0:51 look at him he got scared XD

  15. Benjamin James on November 26, 2020 at 9:34 pm

    I love how this guy is smiling the whole time he talks about this extremely dangerous animal that could kill several men with one sting.

  16. David Garcia on November 26, 2020 at 9:35 pm

    WHY WOULD YOU USE REAL A SYRINGE AND POKE YOURSELF??? LOL 🙂

  17. Mani Loz on November 26, 2020 at 9:35 pm

    0:51 he gets stabbed bye the needles on the balloon and flinches

  18. Bobby Peveto on November 26, 2020 at 9:38 pm

    I like that "rogue legacy" music you used

  19. Yoostburg Von Hilsenhauff on November 26, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    Destin absolutely nailed the pronunciation of "Cairns".

  20. BittenGamer on November 26, 2020 at 9:41 pm

    the way you looked at the venom in 0:27. That was killer xD

  21. Catrina D on November 26, 2020 at 9:41 pm

    You just made it poison itself lol

  22. Smart Alek on November 26, 2020 at 9:42 pm

    did anybody else hurt inside when he swung the needle into his arm? 0:52

  23. Adeum Deus on November 26, 2020 at 9:44 pm

    "I hope I didn’t ruin the beach for ya."

    No, sharks already did that on their own. Jellyfish are just icing on that nope-cake. I will enjoy the beauty of the ocean from land or boat, and will do my swimming in my lovely, isolated lakes, where nothing can bite, sting, or otherwise maim me.

    Australia is just full of animals that can kill you lol

  24. HTORBQ uLTRA on November 26, 2020 at 9:46 pm

    Didn’t search this up but have been learning about Cnidarians in zoology, more proof we’re being watched

  25. JFrugasm on November 26, 2020 at 9:48 pm

  41. Ben Bingham on November 26, 2020 at 10:08 pm

  42. Pizza Gamer on November 26, 2020 at 10:08 pm

  45. Mandark on November 26, 2020 at 10:10 pm

  46. Gabby K. on November 26, 2020 at 10:10 pm

    Was the animal stabbing itself with venom??

  47. jacks krunking on November 26, 2020 at 10:12 pm

  48. ironkai4 2 on November 26, 2020 at 10:13 pm
