    I really, really, really love how this turned out, and especially the atmosphere of this video. I'm here watching this before supper and it really feels like a story. Totally dig the nighttime shooting too. That brought a different feel.

    I remember watching this video as a kid and being absolutely amazed at the rainforest terrain. I wanted to go there, be apart of your team so bad. Cut to 7 years later, I'm in grade 12 and I've applied to multiple schools in for a wildlife biology program. Thank you for instilling a love for life and nature inside of me!!!

    Sometimes I'm tempted to just skip to the parts where you finally catch the animal you're looking for, but I cant get myself to do that with all the effort you guys go through in these videos. I appreciate it!

    I'm continually blown away by the quality of content in Brave Wilderness. There is variety, it is well-editing, and really, Coyote Peterson helps fill the gaping hole Steve Irwin's death left in my heart. Everyone I've shown this channel has agreed, and absolutely loves his energy and personality. He's become a regular name in my friendgroup, and I'm proud to have that name on our tongues. Keep up the good work!

    Hey Coyote! Fantastic video, as always. No worries about the shrimp escaping, it happens to the best of us. The footage you guys got was still amazing, detailed and satisfying enough, in my opinion! You even entered the "pinch zone" for us, even if it wasn't voluntarily! I love your work and I hope you continue to show us amazing creatures and educate people about them ! Good luck!

    I always notice how coyote wants certain things to happen. Like how he wanted to show the prawn in order of smallest to largest and usually things end up that way. Not just in this episode but in most he gets very lucky. And I believe he is so lucky with finding animals and being able to showcase them because of how respectful and polite he is to the universe and its creatures

    Nice video man. I really enjoyed it. We have those crayfish here in the Caribbean. We catch them all the time. They do get pretty big to the point where the claws are bluish-black. I had never considered a heirachy of growth though.

Thank you so much for all that you do for both us fans as well as the animals - keep up the great, positive work, guys!

    The LAST truly "wild" forest on Earth. 👍
    The South and Central American rainforests are literally virgin territory, where few, if any, humans have ever been before. Like Western Canada and Alaska, they're like the lungs of the Planet, soaking up Carbon Dioxide and Monoxide and breathing out oxygen.
    Every acre needs to be protected.
    Absolutely amazing creatures!

    Coyote, I gotta say, you are a lifesaver. The other day I was hiking and a cactus penetrated my shoe. If it weren't for you I wouldn't have known to grab a nearby stick and get it out. God bless you, Coyote Peterson.

    • EmptySora_
      EmptySora_ 3 years ago

      Even if it is common sense, human reaction to pain is usually to jump back and swat or brush it away, like when a bee stings you, or you burn your hand on a stove. If you’re telling me that your first reaction to a cactus stabbing into your foot isn’t trying to brush it off, you’re just probably wrong. The fact they could remember Coyote’s advice despite being in pain, is honestly impressive, and, in the very least, saved them from more pain.

    • Ershler
      Ershler 3 years ago

      @The One Who Stands Above All If you didn't have a multi-tool you would need something nearby to get it out. You obviously wouldn't want to use your hand or other body part, and the rear barbs on the cactus would prevent it from just being "brushed" off and would actually make it go into your skin deeper.

    This once happened to me, but with a lobster. I found an adult-size lobster underneath a huge rock that was only about 10 ft below the surface at high tide. At low tide, it was in a huge tide pool, so it was in less than 2 feet of water when I found it. I picked it up with my net, but the net was too small to get the lobster inside, so the lobster fell back into the water and I lost it.

    Man... I feel your pain, Coyote. It's too bad that Blue Claw actually managed to escape. But hey, it's alright though. Like you and the rest of the crew said in the video, you guys still got quite a few good shots of it while it was latched onto the net. In all fairness, freshwater prawns are very evasive and it's difficult for even the most professional wildlife experts (such as yourself) to keep it held for a long period of time.
