Nothing like Costa Rica for incredible ants. The National Biodiversity Institute (INBio) of Costa Rica has some short videos of the local fauna, including ants.
Here are two examples:
The captions says: "Hymenoptera Formicidae Hormigas de los cornizuelos Pseudomyrmex."
What do you think?
One of those days...
For some reason all the comments on this blog have gone missing.
Hopefully I can restore them from the backup I made before they migrated the server, but it may take a day or so.
In the meanwhile, I will be working behind the scenes.
Just a few updates today.
The October Circus of the Spineless is up at Wanderin' Weeta. Fun to read, as always.
Also wanted to report two items that turned up almost exactly a year ago. Last week I saw the same kind of silverfish that I found in the opening of harvester ant nests again. I looked it up and I saw them last year in the first part of September. No better photographs than last year, but it was also in a harvester ant mound.
Two weeks ago I saw another "meet and greet" by rover ants. The first time I saw that October 10 last year. I'd really like to find out more about that behavior.
Anyone out there have any ideas?
