– All right, you guys ready? Pup, let’s go.
– Yes! – Ladies first. – [Mark] It’s go time,
the A-team assembled. – Okay wow, it feels
great out here tonight. I’m Coyote Peterson,
this is Pup Peterson. – Hi guys! – We got Chance back
here behind the light. – [Mark] Hey Chance. – And of course Mark
is there, right behind the camera, capturing
all the action. – [Mark] I’m waving at you guys. – He is waving. Okay, right now we are on
location in Tucson, Arizona filming episodes
of Breaking Trail. It is night time and what
does the Brave Wilderness Team do when we’re not
filming episodes? We go out to look
for more animals because we just can’t
help ourselves, right? – Yeah! – Now you’re excited to get out into the desert
tonight, aren’t you? – Yeah, I am. – Now everyone in the
Coyote Pack has been asking for longer episodes, so what
we’re gonna do tonight is spend one hour out in the
field seeing how many creatures we can come across between
right now, 11:00 and midnight. Are you ready? – Yeah! – This kid is hyper right now. Now, you need to
carry a couple things. What I have here
is a flashlight, that’s a normal flashlight
to look for things like snakes or tarantulas. And then of course
we have a black light which glows and
luminesces what species? – Scorpions! – Scorpions, that’s right. Hold onto this.
– And also, it’s purple. – It is purple,
which is pretty cool. I also always carry
a snake stick, just in case we come across. – A diamondback rattlesnake! – [Mark] How much candy
did you eat tonight? – [Coyote] Yeah, how
much candy did you eat? – I ate 212,000! Ooh! – This is how you keep an eight
year old up until midnight, you give ’em candy. It sounds like
you’re ready to go. If we find any
rattlesnakes, leave catching the snakes up to me. But at this point,
I think we’re ready to head out into the desert. You guys ready? – [Mark] Let’s go! – All right.
– Yay! – This is gonna be awesome. One hour to find as many
creatures as we can. – Whoa, what the heck is that? – [Mark] John,
there’s a centipede! – Where, where, where? Holy mackerel, oh my
gosh, it really is. That is insane, okay. (wild jungle music) That happened really quickly,
whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. (laughter) – [Pup] I saw it. – Light, light, light,
light, light, light. – Got it, got it. (laughing) Whoa. – Whoa, no, no, no,
careful, careful. – Sorry. – Careful, Pup, okay here we go. – [Mark] That’s the real deal. Wow, I cannot
believe you saw that. – What me? – [Chance] And there’s a
tarantula right behind you. – Is there really, okay. – [Pup] Yeah.
– Yeah, definitely. I’m gonna get both in the shot. – Okay, oh going
right towards my hand. As we know, there’s one thing. – [Mark] This is
your favorite animal. – If there’s one
thing I’m afraid of, it is giant desert centipedes. I’m gonna try to get this
thing under control here. – [Pup] I don’t want
him to go by my foot. – [Coyote] Hold on,
hold on, hold on. – [Pup] He won’t, right? Okay, good. – [Mark] Right outside
our house folks. – [Pup] Cool. – [Mark] That’s for real. – [Coyote] All
right, I’ve got it. And a bite from this
is unbelievably painful and we want to avoid
that at all costs. Ow, ow, ow, those back legs
are gripping onto me as well. And it feels like
little pincers. Holy cow, whoa okay,
heart rate going already. Go ahead Pup, you can get
in here a little bit closer. – [Pup] Yay. – I got it under control now. – [Mark] I cannot believe,
guys, I don’t think anybody’s gonna believe that
we didn’t put that thing. – I don’t think anybody’s
gonna believe that you guys are gonna think that we
put that centipede there. Great spotting. – I just saw them
without any lights, and I’m like, “Oh my
gosh, what’s that moving, “is that a lizard?” – Nope, that is a
giant desert centipede, Not quite as big as the one
that we featured in an episode last year, but wow, that
shows you how biodiverse this ecosystem is, here
in the Sonoran Desert. Walked right out the
front gate and came across the first animal of the night, the one that gives me
nightmares, that’s for sure. – Not me, I think
they’re awesome. – Do you want to pet its back? – Yeah. – Okay, just on the
scales there, of its back. There you go. – Oh, it feels so scaly. – Isn’t that crazy? It is so incredibly
powerful, too. – [Pup] Oh, it feels
like some fish. – Like a fish? Yeah, a little bit, huh? Wow, oh, those little feet
are just digging into me. Mark, you wanna pet it? – Uh. – Don’t worry, it just kinda
doesn’t feel like anything. – [Mark] Oh, yeah. – Pretty crazy feeling, huh? – How are the legs? Do they hurt? – Yeah, well. – [Pup] Can I get
pinched by one? – [Mark] They’re kinda spiky. – Well, what’s interesting
about the legs, you see how they’re digging
into my hand like that? – [Mark] Yeah. That’s actually a defense
for potential predators. So, if something comes in
and tries to grab that end. You see that? This end looks like the
centipede’s head, right? – [Mark] Mm, hm. – So, oftentimes predators
will catch something from the head so they
can kill it quickly. Unfortunately in this instance,
if you get the rump end, you’re not actually
getting the head and it can rear
around and bite you with those massive fangs. All right, we’re
gonna let this guy go, and take a look at the tarantula
that’s right behind us. Okay well, the centipede
has safely moved off in that direction. And now we’re gonna
turn our attention to the wall right there. And most people may
see what this is, a giant spider on the
side of your house and be absolutely terrified. But for us, we’re
pretty excited about it because this is the
second animal we found, and we are just
outside of the gate. I imagine you guys want me to
pick this tarantula up, right? – [Pup] Um, hm. – [Mark] Yes, bring it
close to the camera. – Don’t be frightened,
there you go walk on up. There we go, that’s
a good tarantula. – [Mark] All right, so
bring that over here. – All right. – [Pup] Let me hold it. – [Mark] Give us a look. – Now, most people are
terrified of spiders. I for one, am not. Centipedes, very scary,
tarantulas, not so much. Pup, you wanna hold it? – [Pup] I do. – Well, let it walk
onto your hand, ’cause now it’s
going on my back. – [Mark] Under your backpack. – [Coyote] Under my backpack. – [Mark] That’s not great. – [Coyote] This is
actually really bad, okay. – [Pup] Okay. – [Coyote] I’m going to. – [Pup] Be careful. – [Coyote] Is it
under the backpack? – [Mark] Yeah, it is. You want me to like,
scare it out of there? – Uh, is it
scare-out-able? Okay. – [Mark] Yeah, I think it is. – [Pup] There we
go, it’s off, okay. – Get him up my shoulder, okay. – [Mark] Yeah, now he’s
just going up your face. – Oh, oh, okay
what we want to do. – [Mark] He went up on
your hat, he’s on your hat. – He’s on my hat,
is he on my hat? – [Mark] Yeah.
– Yeah. – [Mark] He’s
wanting up top there. – Okay Pup, if you put
your hand out in front of the tarantula, it
should walk onto your hand, real gently. – [Mark] Hang on, I can’t
see what’s going on. – [Pup] Oh my gosh. – [Mark] Oh, you have it. – [Pup] It’s just so weird. – Got it, okay. Get down low, there
you go, good handle. – (Laughing) Oh, it’s just
so weird, I like it though. – What does it feel like? – It feels like little,
tiny, crawly legs. – [Coyote] That’s
right, pretty cool, huh? – [Pup] But I think it feels
pretty nice and comfortable. – [Coyote] Now, are you
afraid of tarantulas? – No, I’m not even
afraid of spiders. – That’s good. Now, a tarantula never
wants to bite you and the only reason it would
actually inflict a bite is if you would apply
pressure to the top half of its body. And, you’re handling that
absolutely perfectly right now. Just let it walk
from hand to hand, there you go, or
let it stay calm. Just hold it real
still right there. He seems very comfortable
on your hand there. – [Mark] Look at
that, how old are you? – I am eight years old. – [Mark] Eight years old and
not afraid of tarantulas. – Not even spiders, actually. I think spiders are pretty cool. – It has been less
than five minutes and already we’ve caught
a giant desert centipede and a tarantula. There you go. – [Pup] Bye Desert Harry,
we’ll see you again. – Enjoy your night. All right, high fives. (claps) Way to be super brave. Ho, both of us have
been brave tonight. Not only with spiders, but also with giant desert centipedes. Are you guys ready to
go find some reptiles? – [Mark] I’m ready. – Okay. – [Mark] We haven’t
even left the house, the gate’s right there. – Yeah, we’re just
right outside the gate. All right, let’s
head down to the wash and see what we can find. – [Mark] All right. – Woo! I’m excited. – [Coyote] Man, what a
great start to the night. Okay we are, you with me Pup? – Yeah. – We are now getting down
to the edge of the wash, Mark, Chance, and I
have come down here. Let’s regroup, watch
out for those ants. Okay, so at this point, we
have made it down to the wash and this is like an
animal superhighway. This is great for us
because we’re not gonna run into any cacti when
we’re out there, right? – Yeah, yup. – No spikes in the
legs, and it will allow us to easily see animals. Oh, check this out. – [Pup] Whoa! – All right, come
on this side, Pup. Come around. – [Pup] Holy ants! – Come around the back,
come around the back. Well, if you were
a horned lizard, this would be the
right spot to be. I’m not sure what
species this is, but wow! They’ve got quite
the mound going. They’re not harvester
ants, which is good news for me, but I don’t think
any of us want to be bitten or stung tonight by ants. You don’t, right? – No.
– Of course not. – But, why don’t you? – Why don’t I? – Yeah. – Shall I put my hand in
there and see what happens? – Yeah, if they don’t bite you, who cares then, we know
they’re not a species that don’t bite or sting you. – Listen to this kid, yeah,
we probably should try it out, right? I’m sure everybody out
there in the Coyote Pack is thinking, “Come on Coyote!” – [Pup] They’re like,
say it guys, “Do it!” – [Mark] I’m not gonna stop you. – [Coyote] Do it,
do it, all right let’s see what happens. – [Pup] Do it, dude. Keep it in there for a second. (drums pound) Anything? – [Coyote] So far, nothing. No, nothing’s happening. All right, get off me
guys, get off. (blowing) Well, it looks like
this is not turning into a bite and sting
episode, which is good. – Yeah. – Because we didn’t intend
for it to be one, right? – Yeah. All right, let’s keep moving. – [Pup] Yay! – [Coyote] The ants are cool, but nothing’s cooler
than rattlesnakes. Solpugid. – [Mark] What do you have? solpugid, don’t move
it’s a little one. I’m just going to
cup it with my hand. Look at that. – ]Pup] Whoa, he’s almost. – [Coyote] Look at his
chubby little abdomen. – [Pup] Oh! (laughing) – [Mark] He’s a porker. – [Coyote] That is one
beefy little solpugid. Oh, oh, look at that defensive
pose, did you see that? – [Mark] Oh, let
me get in focus. – [Pup] Whoa! – [Mark] All right, yeah. – [Coyote] All right, look
at that defensive pose. Pup, kind of put your finger
down towards the mouth of the solpugid, don’t worry,
it’s not gonna bite you. As we know, they
can’t even break skin. You know, just go ahead. Oh, there you go, I
just wanted it to do its defensive pose. There you go, there
you go, perfect! Look at that, you see that? As we know, the solpugid
is all bark an no bite. – [Pup] His name is
Porkchop Charlie. Their face kind of
looks like a spider. – It does, it’s like a mix between a spider and a scorpion, but it is in fact a
solpugid, nonvenomous, and in a way,
they’re kind of cute. – [Pup] I know, they are. – Look at his little,
chubby butt, look at that. – [Pup] Abdomen. – How did you, abdomen,
you’re right thank you, his little, chubby abdomen. That’s a pretty good
shot right there. All right, let’s let him
back off into the desert and hopefully come
across some reptiles. It’s all arachnids tonight. – [Pup] Yeah! – Okay ready? – [Pup] Bye Porkchop
Charlie, have a great day! – [Coyote] There
he goes, skiddaloo. See ya, bud, all right woo! – [Pup] Bye Porkchop, don’t
forget your snake stick. – Huh, Pup thank you. I keep doing that. All right guys well, there’s
a whole lot of dark desert out there in front of us and the potential to find
reptiles is in our future. Let’s do this. – [Pup] And we’re not
scared to go in the dark, creepy, dark, desert. – [Coyote] Nothing scares
me about the desert. – [Pup] No. – Except for maybe.
(Coyote murmurs) – [Mark] What are we
looking for, Coyote? – [Coyote] I’m looking for
any signs of a rattlesnake. – [Pup] Yeah, I’m looking. – [Mark] What’s a
sign of a rattlesnake? – A snake, right in
the middle of the wash. And what’s interesting
about rattlesnakes is that this time of
night they will travel right along the side of the
wash looking for rodents. So, we don’t have to
even wander off the edges into the cactus
and the underbrush. We should be able to find
one right here in the middle. – [Pup] Don’t walk
in that, dude. – [Coyote] No, that’s
another ant mound. – [Pup] Ant mound. (menacing music tone) – Hey, come here, come here. – [Mark] What do you got? – Come here and tell
me if you see it. – [Mark] What are we looking at? – [Pup] Oh! – You see it, Pup? – ]Pup] I do. – Mark, come around
this side of Pup. – [Mark] I don’t see anything. – Look just up
underneath the brush. Probably pretty hard to see
with my normal flashlight, let’s kill the lights. – [Mark] I don’t see anything. – [Coyote] Kill the main light. – [Mark] Oh. – [Pup] Oo la, la, la. – [Coyote] Look at that,
can you see it now? – [Mark] I see a
big, old scorpion. – [Pup] Oh! – [Coyote] Oh, go
ahead and crouch down. Oh there, it’s
coming out that side. – [Mark] Oh, there he is. – [Coyote] That is a giant
desert hairy scorpion right there. All right, I’m gonna
try to grab him. You ready? – [Mark] Yup. – [Coyote] One, two, three. (loud, rowdy music burst) Ah, woo! – [Mark] Turn that light on. – That does require some nerves. If you do not get the scorpion
right on that last knuckle, you are going to get stung. And what’s so
dangerous about that, and despite the fact that it’s
a giant desert hairy scorpion the venom in no more
potent than a bee. But, it rears its claws
up and then it pinches onto your finger, and every
single time, it always gets me and I want to drop the
scorpion, but if I do, then you get stung. Okay Pup, it’s safe
to come on in here. – Okay, hi! – I’ve got it under control. Now, what I’m going to
do, I’m gonna just let the scorpion sit up
on my hand like that, so we can get a good shot of it. I have a good, firm
hold on the stinger. How cool is that? – Oh, it’s so cool! – A giant, desert
hairy scorpion. Now this is never an
arachnid I would want you to try to catch, and anyone
out there who’s watching this is a venomous animal,
do not try to catch a scorpion if you see it. What is one thing that
we know about scorpions, they flouresce
underneath UV light. That’s how we were
able to spot it. – [Mark] Okay, let’s take a
look at that one more time. Pup, why don’t you
grab the black light. – Oh yeah, grab the black light. – Okay. – Turn it on. – [Mark] All right,
the black light is on. Let’s kill the main light. Whoa! – [Coyote] Pretty cool, huh? Now, here’s a cool little trick. If you wanna find out
if there are scorpions on or around your house,
just go outside at night with a black light, and they
will glow, just like this. I don’t know if that’s
something you necessarily want to find out, sometimes
it’s better to not know, than to actually see them all
over the side of the house. But, it’s pretty cool, huh? – [Pup] Yeah. – [Coyote] All right,
say we let this guy go? – [Pup] Yeah. – [Mark] Let’s do it. – [Coyote] All right, one
more arachnid for the books. One, two, three. – [Pup] Bye, oh whoa. – [Mark] Gone. – Well Pup, so far you’re
doing a phenomenal job. (claps) – Thank you. – Helping me wrangle all
of these animals, but no. – [Mark] Our tally I
think, is at six animals? – Is that what it is, let’s
see, giant desert centipede, tarantula, black widow,
ants, solpugid, scorpion. – [Mark] Six, what time is it? – 11:35. – [Mark] All right, so
we’ve got 25 minutes to go. – 25 minutes to go,
we’re doing pretty good at the moment. – [Pup] Yay! – [Mark] All right, rolling. – [Coyote] Oh wow, okay. Come on up, come slow. – [Pup] Wait, is he venomous? – [Coyote] No, nonvenomous. – [Mark] Okay, let’s
go, check it out. – [Coyote] I got it, I got it. – [Mark] You gonna
bring it to the wash? – I’m gonna come in and
bring it to the wash. Wow, hold on, let’ me
get it under control, it’s gonna be frisky now. – [Mark] Very pretty snake. – A very, very beautiful snake, this is really cool. – [Mark] All right,
I’ve never caught one of these out here. – [Pup] Watch the cactus, dude. – Back up, back up, everybody
away from the cactus. This is awesome. – [Mark] All right,
you come over here. – [Pup] Can I hold
it, it’s not venomous. – [Coyote] Wow yeah, you can
hold this snake, actually. Okay, come on over here. Wow, look at that Pup,
that is a long-nosed snake, one of the safest
species out here. And actually a species
that I’m comfortable with you holding. You wanna hold it? – [Pup] Yeah! – [Coyote] Okay, here you go, there you go, careful, careful. You got it? There you go. That’s pretty cool, isn’t it? – Yeah. – [Mark] So, you’re not
afraid of snakes either? Not afraid of spiders,
not afraid of snakes? – No. I’m like. – [Mark] You’re earning
your nickname Pound Pup. – Yeah. – [Coyote] Look at
how beautiful it is! Now, what does it feel like? – It feels like rubber. – [Coyote] It does, doesn’t it? And look at how shiny
and smooth this snake is. Now these snakes
look like king snakes and they’re really
easy to misidentify, but what they’re out
here eating are lizards and little rodents. We know that king
snakes eat rattlesnakes and other snake species. If it was a rattlesnake, you
know you couldn’t hold it. – [Pup] Yeah. – But long-nosed snake,
totally safe to handle. No matter what, when you’re
out there in the desert, especially in an area
with venomous snakes, always make sure you
identify the snake first, before you attempt to handle it. Now this species, totally safe, king snake, totally safe. Rattlesnakes? – [Pup] Not safe. – Not so much. Well, let’s keep
heading up the wash, and maybe we’ll come
across a rattler. What do you think? – [Pup] Yeah. – [Coyote] Okay,
let’s keep going. – [Pup] What did you think
that was in front of you? (mutters, unintelligible reply) Oh, yeah, (mutters,
unintelligible) – [Coyote] Hello,
I heard something. – [Mark] What did you hear? – [Coyote] Something in
these grasses right here, probably a kangaroo rat, but
let me take a look first. – [Pup] I saw it. – Got it, nice spotting Pup. Finally, a little
reptile, look at that! – You have some thorns in
the back, so be careful. – Yeah I know, I
can feel that, yeah. Look at that, here you
go, you hold onto that. That was your
spotting, I had to dive under that cactus
to catch it, ouch! So tell everybody at
home what that is. – This is a western
banded gecko. – And this is another
completely safe reptile species to capture out
here in the desert. This is actually one of
my favorite reptiles. Let me see. – ‘Cause you can
see through ’em. – To catch at night,
that’s right, look at this. Whoa, whoa, come
here little guy. Look at the belly,
it’s semi-translucent and you can see all the little
organs working inside there. Can you see that on your camera? – [Mark] Yeah. – [Pup] Can I see? – Isn’t that cool? He likes a little belly rub, give him a belly rub. – [Pup] Belly, belly,
belly rub. (laughing) – How cute is that
little lizard? – He’s so cute, let me hold him. – Now, it is a very
delicate lizard species, you never wanna try to
catch this one by its tail because they will detach
their tails, and the tail is where they store all
of their fat reserves. Here you go, you hold onto it. – [Pup] Coyote, so is
this guy, is he nocturnal? – [Coyote] It is nocturnal. You see how soft and
delicate the skin is? – [Pup] Yeah. – [Coyote] If it’s out
during the middle of the day the heat from the desert
will actually cook this little animal. So yes, you notice how it’s
so much cooler out tonight? – [Pup] Yeah. – Definitely a
nocturnal species. Okay well Pup, since I caught
him, but you spotted him, why don’t you do
the honors of giving this little lizard a name? – His name shall be Chiger,
mixed with a cheetah and a tiger. – I like it, sounds
like perfect. All right, let him go
right back over here. – Okay, bye Chiger. Hopefully we’ll
see you some day. (soft piano music) – We found something, like
we’re walking and literally I said, “What is that?” And right there in front
of us is a spadefoot toad. All right Pup, you
got this catch? Real gentle. – [Pup] Got him. – [Coyote] Good job! – [Pup] Hey! – [Coyote] Excellent work. Hold it just like you
would a normal toad. All right, bring it
towards the camera. – Hello. – [Coyote] Crouch down there. – [Mark] That’s beauteous. – Look at that! – What? – Look at those buggy eyes. Now, spadefoot toads
spend a great deal of their year
buried underground. And I bet you today,
because we had that monsoon rain push through, this guy dug himself up
from underneath the sand. – Wow. – [Coyote] Can I see? – Yeah. – Wow, that is one buggy
looking little toad, wow. – Look how he does that bubble. – [Coyote] That is
pretty crazy, isn’t it? – [Pup] He is really cute. – Well, our first
amphibian of the night. How awesome is that? – Yeah. – You wanna let him go. – Yeah, you know what? – [Mark] Let that hopper go. – You know what? You named him,
his name’s Hopper. – His name is Hopper? There you go, let him go right
back onto the ground there. – All right, bye. – [Mark] Bye, Hopper. – Okay, while we were
about to call it a night, we were getting just
back to the house. Pup, you back there? – Yeah. – Are you behind the cameras? We’ve got a western
diamondback rattlesnake right here, I’m
gonna move up slow. Oh, and look at this
scorpion coming down right here next to us, too. The snake just scared this
giant desert hairy scorpion right into the scene. Ha, things are out
everywhere tonight. All right, I’m gonna
slowly bring the snake down here into the wash, so
we can get an up-close shot. All right Pup, stay
a safe distance back. As we know, this a
western diamondback and it is venomous,
but how cool is that? Topping off our night with one of the most dangerous snakes that’s out here in
the Sonoran Desert. Ah, ah, ah, you stay, you stay. And all he wants to
do right now is get back off up into the
desert to hunt for rats. There we go, that’s exactly
what we want, stay calm. And, I guarantee you
because the monsoons just moved through,
everything is moving through the wash at the moment. That makes 10 animals tonight in just a little over an hour. How awesome is that? – [Mark] Sweet, Pup
are you seeing this? – [Pup] Yeah. – [Mark] Pup’s
staying behind me, we’ve gotta be safe. – Yeah, the safest
situation here is to definitely keep Pup
far back from the snake behind the cameras. Pup, you got to be in
front of the cameras with everything else
tonight, but it’s awesome for the Coyote Pack
just to see this animal. And I bet you guys
thought we were gonna go the whole night without
seeing a rattlesnake. I think we have literally
seen it all tonight here in the Sonoran Desert. All right, rattlesnake is up
under the prickly pear cactus and in a burrow. – [Mark] All right, Pup. – Come on here, Pup. Totally safe now. – [Mark] Woo-hoo,
how awesome is that? – That was awesome! – Did you have a
great time tonight? – Yeah. – Well guys, this is how we
totally spend our free time when we’re not actually filming
Breaking Trail episodes. And nothing could have
topped the night off better than a western
diamondback rattlesnake. I’m Coyote Peterson. – And I’m Pup Peterson. – Be brave. – Stay wild. – We’ll see you on
the next location. All right, let’s go. – [Pup] Woo! (vigorous string music) – [Coyote] If you enjoyed
this on location episode, make sure to go back
and watch the time I climbed up a tree
to get some coconuts and caught an iguana. And don’t forget, subscribe to
the Brave Wilderness Channel so you can join me and the
crew on our next big adventure. – [Mark] Have you
done this before? – No, I’ve never opened
a coconut before. I’ve also never climbed a
palm tree to get a coconut, or climbed a palm
tree to get a coconut and catch an iguana,
so it’s a first for everybody this morning. – [Mark] So, it’s safe to
say you’re a coconut rookie. – Yes, I’m a complete
rookie and I hope I don’t cut my thumb
off doing this. All right, you ready? – [Mark] Here we go, all right. – [Coyote] Here we go. (thunder, coyote howls)
