That initiation ceremony mentioned where they make boys place their hands in gloves of Bullet ants; the ants are anaesthetised so that they are drowsy. They still sting and it still hurts like crazy but it's not the full whack of the sting they get. Still, I wouldn't like to do it.

Aren't the bullet ants anaesthetised only while being woven into the gloves, and then they wake up fully? Either way, anything whose spanish name means "24 hour ant" because that's how long the sting lasts is something i think I'll avoid... Wink
