    Seriously...you should become a patron. How else are we going to be able to keep bringing you important information like this. And I can't tell you how much it matters to all of us on the team. patreon.com/scishow ! Also, if you like butt teeth, After Hours (only available for Patrons) is really wonderful. It's charming and disgusting and always extremely enlightening. But the topics are just stuff we can't really talk about on SciShow without it getting a little too NSFW. Only $4 a month!

    These are the following takeaways from his video: Dragonfly larvae have butts that: - Can breath; - Are jet engines; - And also pressure cannons. Scorpions: - Poop from somewhere in their tails and not their main body; Sea cucumbers: - Have teeth in their butts; - Get surprised buttesecks from pearlfish; - Pearlfish find sea cucumber ass as a tasty treat; Rove beetles: - Have farts that have water-bending magical capabilities; - Can also be the future bait of electric fly traps; Beaded Lacewings: - Have farts that violate the Chemical Weapons Convention;
