(upbeat salsa music). - welcome back to what's. inside, i'm lincoln. and this is dan,. and today we have something. i have not seen yet,. as usual, jumping beans!. - mexican jumping beans,. because today is cinco de mayo. happy cinco de mayo. - yay!. - (laughs) cinco de mayo. - cinco de mayo!. - if you haven't heard. about mexican jumping beans,. they're inside of this bag. we're going to take them out. we bought 200 of them. so let's grab a few of them,. let's put 'em on lincoln's hand. there we go. go. maybe these are dead ones. oh, and where do we get these . no, we did not go to mexico. - no. - we tried,. but it turns out the city that it's in. is not the safest place. to visit at this time. so, we bought these online. and got 'em sent to us. - why aren't they safest . - i don't know . this is really cool, if. you're a school teacher,. this would be a really cool. thing to buy to show your class. - oh, it moved, it moved, it moved!. - what, in your hand . - yeah. - it moved just a little, tiny bit. this one right there, see that one . right there, that one. moved, for it was facedown,. not up like that. ooh, it moved, look at it!. look at it!. - oh, it's totally moving. - get me outta here. maybe that one's the only one alive. - look at that one, it's happening. - oh, this one just moved liked crazy. oh, another one moved in there. - look at that, it's going,. it's trying to get away from your hand. there is something inside of these!. we didn't get completely ripped off. when we bought these off of the internet. that is crazy. - oh, another one just moved. - there are things inside of here. hey, dog, dog. - dog. - i'm surprised it's actually working. they are a little seed on. a bush in sonora, mexico. it's the only place in the entire world. and these moths come and. they leave their larvae,. whatever it is, inside of the bean. and as it grows, it eats. the inside of the seed,. to one point it falls off onto the ground. and then when it's on the ground,. it can sit there for up to a year. they're very sensitive. to temperature changes. if you put it in your hand,. it feels the heat pretty. quickly of you hand,. and it realizes, "oh my. gosh, this is too hot,. "let's move. ". because if it gets to. hot, it gets dehydrated,. and then the worm will die. and it will never turn. into a moth and fire out. - that's interesting. - there ya go, there's. some history, background. we need to cut these open. and see what's inside of them. to see if there's actually. some kind of worm in here. this is kind of weird. - do they live in creatures . - yeah, they're living. worms, little wormies. - will they die in there . - if they get too dehydrated they will. or if we cut them open. ? in the arms of ?. - i've got an idea. to try to accelerate this. process a little bit. - i'm nervous. - fire. - oh, one's already moved. - alright, we gotta heat. they did say--. - oh, that's hot!. - yeah it's hot, don't touch it. so what i did read is. that even enough heat of. turning up the air in your house. will be enough to stimulate them. or the temperature from you hand. so this is pretty hot, right here. over a long period of. time, if they're too hot,. then they will die. but it is definitely. a long period of time,. so let's see how much they move. this is definitely working right now. maybe you think jumping bean,. you think it's gonna jump. five inches in the air. i don't think that's the case here. - [lincoln] no. - you know, there's a lot of animals. and things you feel bad about,. i don't know if this. is one of those things. i feel like i'm a government. official right now,. interrogating somebody. tell me where you hid the bombs . - in those. - hot day to be a bean. (upbeat salsa music). okay, that was a really good experiment. i thought it was a good experiment. we were able to see them. accelerated and start moving. some of them didn't move, but. i would say 70% of them did. - i made a face. - there's definitely. something inside of here. and i wanna see what it looks like. - [lincoln] yeah. - the first living organism. that we've ever cut open. - i don't really think of this as living. - okay, well, i've got a few knives. how do you pick one . who's the lucky one . - they wouldn't be very lucky. if they were being cut open. - this one, right here. - okay. - this is one of the biggest. ones that we have, right here. and it's been moving a lot. let's wait and make sure. it actually still moves. i wanna cut one open that moves. these guys are loud. - it moved!. - it moved, did it really move. or did the wind push it over . - i bet i hit it. (upbeat electronic music). yup, it moves. - we are about to set him free. there's this hard, brown. layer on the outside. and then you look on the inside,. and it's green on here with. this little tan looking spot,. right there. - that's probably where the worm is. - okay, i've made a small hole in there. there's just a little, tiny hole. - it's probably so bright. - worm. - for his eyes. - wormy, worm, you comin' out . - tryin' to be gentle. i don't wanna just cut his face off. okay. i'm just gonna crack it open. - can you . - i thought i could. - is it even in there . - okay, i can hear all. these guys jumping around. - oh!. it's living!. (laughs). - [dan] look at that. we got him. - [lincoln] and we didn't kill him!. - not yet at least. - [lincoln] what are you doing . - look at him. - buddy, i'll catch you if you fall. - [both] oh!. - it's got a string!. - (laughing) it's like a spider. - yeah, he's gonna. build his little cocoon. when you get some rotten. food from the grocery store,. and it has maggots in it,. you don't feel so bad. about killing those, right . should we eat it . let's put a poll question, right there. should lincoln or i eat the maggot guy . - i think it pooped. it was like, bwah blah blah,. that's what it was doing in there. - is that what you do when you poop . - yeah. (laughs). - he's still alive. he's lookin', let's put. him in his little home. let's put him back. look how many, we have all these worms. i don't want these in my house. i don't want them to turn into moths. and then wake up in. the middle of the night. and there's moths all over my face. - aah!. - so a mexican jumping bean. does have a little worm. that will turn into a moth at some point. - and it has a little string thingy. - i hope you have a good cinco de mayo. and i hope your chips and. guac don't have little worms. or maggots in it. - i'm gonna cut ya. - if it does, you can think of this video. - should i touch it . look, it's back in its home. - kind of a cool thing for teachers,. if you wanna have 'em for. your classroom to show. students mexican jumping beans. and if you do wanna buy some of these,. we bought 'em off of ebay. and they only have them in the springtime. because that's when these come out. these fall of the bushes,. and they're able to get 'em to mexico,. bring 'em to the united states,. ship 'em out. i think they ship these from san diego . they don't actually jump super high. they just kind of. shake. they're more like mexican rattle beans. - yeah, that'd be a better name,. but it doesn't sound as cool. - or mexican rattle worms. - i would think that it would. actually look like a worm. - we will have a giveaway,. if you would like one of. these mexican jumping beans. let's say, we'll give away, how many, 30 . - 100. - 100 . - yeah. - okay, i don't know if we. have it, do we have 100 . i think that's what i bought. - you said you bought 200. - okay, we'll give away 100 of these. and actually mail them to you. 100 stamps, 100 envelopes,. we probably have to put some. protective covering around it. - i thought we were just. gonna give 100 to one person,. but yeah!. - no, like 100 different people. - yeah, let's do that. - this is gonna be our biggest. giveaway we've ever given. if you guys want one of these. - one. - let us know, and we. will send 100 people,. in the united states, a jumping bean. cinco de mayo. - cinco de mayo!. .
