Top of the Chart


TheVJProduction : when the bass drop

Coptah : kid hits em with the roblox death noise

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.

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

B R : *OOF*

RedDiamondCrew : But, why?

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!

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...

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

KillingerDOOM : clearly they're into metal.

PikolUploader : my autistic cousin makes similar sounds

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.

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


Blackflame : Put on some low-frequency death metal.

DukeLaCrosse20 : sounds like I'm watching something nsfw.

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.

Marcel Winklmüller : but i cant hear any sound ?

Martin Plociennik : Have you considered putting them in a smaller container and see if they do it to the same frequency? It may very well be the Helmholtz resonance frequency of the volume of the container. Which makes everything, including the leaves vibrate inside, which startles the caterpillars as their sensitive legs detect it. Very interesting phenomenon nonetheless!! :)

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

ally : Dance party

Jassi Brar : 😒

SmashingGamerz -Minecraft & More : How is this trending on Canada??

Braidin Purdy : #savesml

Rourke Sullivan : Bitch dem ain’t butterflies

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

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


Cody Quinn : looks like your just scaring the shit out of them. I also bobbed my head when I thought a giant ape was behind me about to knock my head off.

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

HF Integrale : R.I.P Headphone users

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

xColindres : METAL!!!

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

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

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!

JohnnyReiTV : Great material for a *trap*

Haydn Samuels : Got some pretty top end audio tech there

Dick Trickle : tfw no autistic gf to honk at caterpillars with for christmas

Ryan Garten : Clearly they're into metal
