My favourite fact about Ants is that they form a superorganism where they function together and accomplish amazing feats as part of a collective whole, doing what is best for the colony.
My favourite Ant fact is how impressively these little guys communicate, and to think, Ants don’t even have the luxury of speech!

My favourite fact about Ants is that some ants form “supercolonies,” massive communities of ants that can stretch for thousands of miles.
My favourite fact about Ants is that Ants will enslave other ants, keeping them captive and making them do work for the colony. (Should we be worried? 🙂 )
