About Coyote Peterson

Do the weird and monstrous creatures of the ocean’s depths freak you out? Are you afraid of getting stung when you see a swarm of angry insects? Coyote Peterson sure isn’t. On his Brave Wilderness YouTube channel, Coyote enthusiastically takes 9.2M subscribers into various ecosystems and environments to encounter some of the rarest, most unique animals in existence. His most popular videos feature creatures with harsh stings, pinches, and bites, with Coyote filming himself enduring the pain of their wrath. Coyote began 2017 appearing on Conan, introducing the late night host and guest Jeff Goldblum to interesting spiders, insects, and slugs. He ended the year with an additional 4M+ subscribers on YouTube, becoming one of the platform’s top 200 accounts.
