  • Why had you blurred out only one persons face and everybody else’s face wasn’t?

  • 🐢🐢🐢🐢🐊🐊🐊🐊🐍🐍🐍🐍

  • This is why i love animals sm. They have to go through stuff like this, i remember when i was like 6 i watched an animal saving type of show and the sort of injuries that baby kittens and small turtles have. Its just horrible. ❤️😭☺️

  • coyote your pretty full of yourself, there are thousands of people in the world that could remove that hook

  • I saw a blak wido with my friends today we all tallked about teh vid you did with a blak wido

  • Hey Coyote ur the best I love wildlife too but I’m to scared to touch anything like snails yuck! Lol

  • A derpy turtle great! Very cute

  • Why is Pup's face blurred out?

  • I feel like I'm watching Nat Geo wild

  • Who is that girl with the blurred face at 3:06

  • such a great engineering!

  • :( oh no 🤦‍♀️ Poor animals

  • I cought a snapping turtle by it tail

  • The turtles face after he pulled out the hook is so sad...

  • This is one of my favourtie youtubers

  • How does he carry on afte getting wet, if it were me I would be sulking about it until I change

  • i would wager that removing a hook from someone eye probably qualifies as more dangerous

  • please i hooked a snapper double that size steel leader 65 pound braid brought it on to shore and did the same thing snappers are harmless when handled correctly stop instilling fear and just teach people

  • Coyote you are a hero, great job Mario, kid that gave coyote stick good job .Mark cool shots.

  • How come only one person has his or hers face blurred

  • Awesome job coyote

  • I am 10 yrs old and there was a hook in a snapping turtle i already took the hook out without a person from the centre

  • Wow

  • Lovely work bro ..

  • Why is pup's face blurred? The girl is pup right?

  • Que bueno que hay gente asi

  • Theres a snapper at my cottage that must look like he's in a punk band with all the hooks he must have in its mouth. Can't even fish off the dock anymore cuz it always manages to find our hooks!

  • So as someone who projects himself as a person who cares about wildlife he saw some people fishing where they weren't supposed to and didn't say anything so he could get attention and get praised for getting a hook out of it's mouth

  • these kids (probably) think this turtle is a normal turtle (cause they get really close to it) but this dude can bite off your darn finger

  • I like turtles.

  • *snaps*

  • Why the face of little girl behind is blurred.. ??

  • The videos are so crisp and clear

  • Thanks but you are a super duchebag

  • I want to see you myself I have been watching your channel for 2 3 weeks


  • Looks like the tiab kcilc

  • god im so lost

  • Why is it that the turtle actually looked grateful for coyote ripping that hook out? I mean, I can assume that after the cameras were off that he wasn't very well behaved, but for that brief moment, he seemed happy, and thankful... Is it just me?

    • Ariadne Some animals have been known to show a bit of gratitude after being saved, however snappers are quite aggressive :P

  • I like this guy no homo

  • I wanna be there so bad 😭

  • I am very your fan would like to see you testing the strength of clamp crab guaiamum

  • More like Hookless

  • Kyrie yay he is back 😁

  • Fishing hooks are designed to rust away in a very short time. There is no need to remove them.

    • yep. looks like it came out just fine.

    • Bo Jangles True but if he can remove it he might as well :P

  • The poor thing one of the kids say : and one said aww

  • Fan

  • I am a fN

  • Oh no I have 3 pet turtles and this make me sad 😔😔😔😔🐢🐢🐢🐢🐢🐢

    • The Official Bruce Woo Woo I've got a few turtles as well and it sucks to see them hurt :/

  • I love the respect you gave this animal. Awesome. And teaching the kids to do the same. Priceless! Thank you!!

    • Kawy Thowy I feel like education is super important with wildlife for kids. I'm trying to do the same kind of thing

  • One about that big walked into my yard but luckily we got it into the swampy area near my house

    • LukeBendo Snappers are known to wander long distances and stay completely out of water for vast periods of time. They're beasts!

  • You're supposed to release a hook and a snapping turtle's mouth because it is way too dangerous to get them out that's how you do it and eventually the hook grows and a snapping turtle's mouth that's how you do it for real

    • Estin Frankenhoff Well the way he did it was pretty safe and controlled so I'd trust em

  • why is the thumbnail so funny ?

  • Yay‼️

  • Turt L.

  • So nice seen kids enjoy nature and appreciate it ...instead of sitting on their computers ..wish more youth would just turn them off and go outside and enjoy gods creation ...but thats just wishful thinking on my part

    • Rogelio Morales I'd agree, too much beautiful stuff out there to see!

  • Pursuit post civilian ogvunw aid option amendment forehead college maybe walk across.

  • This actually happens to me fishing the other day the snapper took the bait and got stuck thank god I had metal hook removers and saved the guy

    • Michael Benjamin That's awesome!! Thanks for saving the little one :)

  • Can you do a jumping spider episode?

  • 3:06 i wonder why that girl in the black shirt get blur out

  • Why is one girl's face blurred out

  • Think about how bad that hook has been hurting him

    • James Sullivan Turtles are tough as nails but it does still really irritate them :/ Theyll live with it in and itll fall out however that doesn't mean it feels good for them

  • I Like Turtles!

  • I didn't know people saved snapping turtles. When I was growing up they were killed if caught. They would kill all the fish in lakes and not even eat them.

    • DerekM Snappers are a valuable part of the ecosystem and shouldn't be killed unless necessary or for food.

  • Sin pale order puzzdp winner nearly speed shout continued approach.

  • I like turtles 🐢

  • Bro when are you going to get stung again ?

  • What’s to rescue? That turtle had the hook in its mouth for a long time with no problems.

    • THeSummoneD It's still uncomfortable for the turtle and has the possibility of causing some complications

  • LOL where in from we eat the turtle if we catch one and they are very good

  • Maltrato Animal

  • Me and my freind found one of those stuck on his back we flipped him over and put him back

  • Your viewership decline just as fast as your popularity... from million viewership to not even half a million

  • He’s seems so serious towards the kids😂

    • Not all are like that though! My 3 turtles are sweet as can be :D

    • XD XD

    • DanTheGuppyMan ya especially with an evil turtle that’s craving for human flesh😂😂😂

    • Mr Theorys You kind of have to be for their own safety

  • Turtle: Dude! I paid 99 bugs for that!!!

  • This is so cute wtf

  • Garbage Jeff Goldblum

  • Snapping Turtle: You're my hero

    • Vidal Zaragoza Turtles show no gratitude, such a thankless job!!! Sometimes I help out my turtles if they're in a situation and boy do they not care 😂

  • That's one PO'd turtle.

    • Victor Monaco Snappers are what I like to call hyper aggressive.

  • Hahahhaa, Blur face LOL

  • That poor thing with that fishing hook who knows how long that’s been there

    • DanTheGuppyMan ok that’s good

    • Kate Henry the hook wasn't rusted at all so I'd say not too long luckily
