    • @lopassociate It's just a hobby but the idea is for everyone to watch these amazing videos in Spanish

    • I want a video on light pollution!

    • Will you comment a link to the next video here ?

  • I saw one of these Wars in real life

  • Being nomadic warrior tribes, army ants are kind of the ant dothraki.

  • So much for "humans are the only species that violently kills others of their kind". Not that it feels great to know this ._.

  • Part 2


  • Ok, I want a video game now

  • Türkçe altyazı düzeltilirse sevinirim.

  • Can’t wait for the next episode!

  • wow pls bring more ants to the channel!

  • Anyone else feel something crawling on their body?

  • Please sub to my channel😭😭😭😭

    • @momisli soom exactly what i was thinking

  • Extremely good videos. Kurzgesagt upload very helpful and informative videos. I am the biggest fan of Kurzgesagt. I am watched all your videos.

  • When an ant sees an Ant Exterminator ATTACK ON TITAN MUSIC PLAYS

  • No se ustedes, pero yo estuve alucinando durante todo el vídeo, me encanto este trabajo.

  • War ia natural. arm up boys!

  • What an absolute social unit


  • Is it me or he is one of the voice behind how its made? Love his voice very much tho

  • In The Grim Dark Future of The 21st Century, There Is Only War...

  • Can you do a video about "What does Reality really look like?"

  • Awesome. Waiting for part 2...

  • A colony: exists An agressive colony: exists Agressive colony: sees that ither colonies exist Agressive colony's strategy: rush b

  • can you make a video on what would happen if the amazon rainforest was to be burned down completely, and how we and the world would be affected? In reference to what's going on right now.

  • When's the next video

  • An episode with a hook to the next, I love it!

  • So army ants are like a zerg rush.

  • Truly epic

  • Non ci sono i sottotitoli in italiano

  • Pls part 2

  • Nice animation

  • "We found another species! let's name it..." * hits keyboard with forehand slice *

  • love the music!

  • MORE!

  • Thank you

  • TIL ants are super racist.

  • This video about ANTS was so epic. I liked it so much I watched it till the very last second to extend watchtime

  • 3:52 This is the ant that didn't show up when they said "be there or be square."

  • That is called TEAM WORK

  • Да это жёстко)

  • Pls who is reading my comment could you give me a link for a German version. Have a good day!

  • They say videogames cause violence, but look at what these ants have teached us.

  • Antvengers, assemble!

  • Does anyone know what Kurzgesagt means I think it’s German but it could also be a tricky scientific word

    • It means "put briefly", "put shortly" or literally "said shortly" in German. In German we usually will say something like: "kurz gesagt, ..." at the beginning of a summary or conclusion. You might also use it in a situation where in English you'd write tl;dr

    • It means "short review"

  • When will the next video about ants

  • Are they kissing? hahahaa

  • 働き蟻は、我々よりブラックな企業に勤めてるのか…

  • Could you make a video about God of Chaos, said to pass nearby the earth in 10 years?

  • And yet us humans squish them with ease

  • Merci pour les sous-titre en Français.

  • Could you expose the possibility that the universe isn't infinite but very big and by studing explosions in space could help us with the Big Bang

  • I would watch 100 episodes of this. Just covering as many species of ants as possible.

  • Wow, what a great video. Thank you!

  • My God! Your channel is asome, full of knowledge and interesting things! Suscribed, you deserve millions more!


  • Kingdom

  • Awesome video. Thank you!

  • Came from jaby koay channel

  • Interesting video!

  • give more please

  • Waiting for the next 1 keep it up bro💯💯

  • Kurz could you do a video about the fire in the amazon rainforest? I feel like there isn't enough awareness and you are good at finding accurate information


  • It’s a topic I don’t really care about. I just love kerzegsgt

  • someone should make a game "War of the Ants" lmao.. .make your own colony, wage war against other ants that have specializations... and not those shitty mobile games that force you to pay to be even with other people..

  • Me watching the ants fight : Awwww, they playing. The ants : No, we slaying.

  • Then you cant enter a colony because of a big head *Now that’s an Avengers level treat*

  • Until a human steps on them and restarts the whole cyclw

  • make a video about what happend if the amazonas dissaper because the fire

  • When will you be releasing your new video

  • could u do a video about “white holes”?

  • If gravity could be unified with the other forces then what would that mean for us? As imperfect as our understanding of physics is many technologies and sciences have been developed from what little we know. So if we could enlarge our understanding by unifying gravity what exactly can we develop from that breakthrough? What machine, medicine, or chemistry could be possible if the unified field theory was complete?

  • And they say war was made by humans Pfft...

  • Me: no good internet for a few weeks Kurzgesagt: THE WORLD WAR OF ANTS

  • As an ant keeper, I really liked this video. Waiting for the Argentine ants video. 😉

  • What about Esports

  • Any ant keepers here? 🙂✌️

  • Can I get a bird I can’t have patron If I did I’d be your patron

  • That explains why Shino Aburame is so strong !
