Ant Video

The Washington Post has a new video this week featuring Ted Schultz, research entomologist at the National Museum of Natural History.

The peculiarity of ant farmers at the National Museum of Natural History (video link). Note:  Sorry, the next video in the series autoplays when this one is done unless you stop it.

The video accompanies an article by Sarah Kaplan, "These strange, subterranean cities are eerily like our own. But they’re ruled by ants."

Okay, you've probably already seen these ant videos because they are making the rounds of social networks, but I thought they were worth sharing again.

Bees Unlimited shared this video of Leptogenys ants moving a millipede in Cambodia.

Aren't those chains of workers surprising?

Here's a closer view, where you can see the details of the workers better.

I'm surprised this millipede isn't discharging, because it looks fresh. Maybe it already did.

Finally, here's another video of the same behavior by a different author at Wimp.com.

Forget the Ant Class in Portal. I'm headed to Cambodia.:-)
What about you?
