TheVJProduction : when the bass drop

RedDiamondCrew : But, why?

Coptah : kid hits em with the roblox death noise

Jacob & Emma : How the new bassnectar has me feeling

camt32 : That is so cool! but are you sure they can actually hear as opposed to pickup up vibrations? The lower pitch frequencies have more pronounced wavelengths

mad : @0:51 roblox?

Zono : Play earrape owo

Cygnus' Edge : When you're watching a video and suddenly you hear the Roblox death sound in the background.

Savage Foils : This probably explains why birds use high pitched chirps so they can communicate without their prey hearing.They evolved that way with the low pitched birds not being able to eat.

PikolUploader : my autistic cousin makes similar sounds

Roland Soós : debugging those green robots was easy and cheap, nice!

Wild♦Card : you know...this could be torture for them for all you know. i know it was for me listening to that weird ape like noise she was making...

someGUYwithADHD : Please for the love of god... get a boom box, play some deep bass techno, and let us watch them dance! Guaranteed viral video!

KillingerDOOM : clearly they're into metal.

brunogarcia : I was expecting you to use a tone generator, but this is better.

Martim V.A : It's not clear whether they can "hear" (i.e. they have some kind of 'ears'); instead they might just have some sort of impulsive reaction to sound waves

Jose Gochez : lol press 5 then 6 on your keyboard.

dan harv : The lower frequencies actually vibrate the leaves on the plant that they are on.

Nataly RAW : sounds like a monkey having sex while evolving into a gorilla

Dick Trickle : these caterpillars would be losing their shit if they heard some 808's. you should try listening to Luke dies, Leah gets blown out of an airlock but survived using force magic flying, Kylo Ren kills snoke to save Rey, Admiral Ackbar dies.

SilkSatin Paradise : The cuteness of caterpillars is inversely proportional to the number of them in the same place.

JohnnyReiTV : Great material for a *trap*

Venom415 : Was expecting her to play Still D.R.E and I was dissapointed lol

pikiwiki : headbanging caterpiggles

Mister Natural : No.You can't try.I got this.

Bryan Soe : Hypothesis: They might have some kind of sensory receptor on their body picking up vibrations from lower frequencies. Maybe as a way to detect predators.

Arxces : lol i was expecting a computer or phone to make the sound XD

Jassi Brar : https://youtu.be/G1uYJx3AKeg 😒

Narwhal Bacon : You should make that noise on a first date.

geefreck : It's not the sounds themselves. They freak out when they feel they're near Darth Vader.

Haydn Samuels : Got some pretty top end audio tech there

Marcel Winklmüller : but i cant hear any sound ?

HF Integrale : R.I.P Headphone users

P I : bassier grunts indicate a large animal that might be coming to eat them probably some kind of defense mechanism.

iGame3D : Bass sounds are similar to grunting noises of something chewing on their food supply and potentially them. What grunts and eats leaves in their natural environment? Bears, moose, deer, etc.

Milford Roderick Stock : They may just feel the resonance, not necessarily hear the sound..

Kevin Jeong : That is awesome scientific experimentation! I had no idea monarch butterflies had that behaviour! Are the intensities of head movements affected by volume? What happens when a monarch butterfly hears that frequency vs a caterpillar? Keep up the good work!

xColindres : METAL!!!

gus : How long til we get a video of you doing this test to music?

Rourke Sullivan : Bitch dem ain’t butterflies

SKGKyle : OOF

Alexander Stedman : Lol Reddit brought me here, Its probably some form of resonance as to their enclosure and their own anatomy as to the sounds you're making. Next time try Online Tone Generator. Don't have it too loud though. Look up info about the brown note, or mike boyds channel where he breaks crystal glasses by shouting at them, same principles

DukeLaCrosse20 : sounds like I'm watching something nsfw.

Blackflame : Put on some low-frequency death metal.

Tyblerone : That is probably one of the most annoying noises i've ever heard but good job on the science.

Braidin Purdy : #savesml

Mindchime Official : These are NOT monarch butterflies as the title suggests. These are caterpillars. They can't "hear" like you said. They sense/feel the vibrations.

KeyboardWrecker : Now get a really big subwoofer!

Ryan Garten : Clearly they're into metal

Jadraptor : I love this. Thank you for sharing your experiment.
