Ant thread!

also, i suppose I should apologize that most of my ant pics will come from one source.

did you know:

- The total biomass of all humans is less than the total biomass of all ants

- Ants live on every one of earth's continents

- Ants employ a stunning variety of natural attacks, ranging from simple mandibular pinches and abdominal stings to acid sprays, suicide bombing, jaw-based spring attacks, suffocation through lung invasion, and hole plugging?

- Ants can solve mazes more efficiently than most humans?

- Ants are not actually controlled by any one ant in the colony?

- Ant hills can be up to 23 feet deep and hold millions of individuals?

- Ants navigate using a combination of pheromone trails, stellar navigation, landmarks, and other ants?

- Ants are used by museums to prep display skeletons?

some ant species employ specialized guard castes whose heads are specifically shaped to plug nest holes unless incoming individuals can identify themselves via pheromonal exchange and antenna stridulation?

probably depends on how you define antarctica, but of course there will be ants living in the research stations and boats down there so... yeah, technically.

siafu have one of the highest success rates of any predator, succeeding in succumbing over 80% of all termite nests invaded.

perhaps the most enduring paradoxes of ants is that for all their sophisticated behavior, their individual intelligence is actually much lower than many comparably-sized and structured animals (e.g. other insects and invertebrates).

Ants, in fact, RELY on their own individual stupidity as a means of generating extremely complex outputs at the colonial level. The complexity of ant behavior is due to the simplicity of ant behavior, as it were.

Having existed for hundreds of millions of years, ants represent a genetic hack - the ability to adapt and overcome almost any selective process via nearly the simplest set of genetic instructions; ants represent a local maxima in genetic efficiency that has seldom been surpassed - except, perhaps, in humans. Only time will tell.

I remember that I used to keep solenopsis invicta but the queens always died. Guess too much humidity.

Nope, there are no ants on Antarctica anywhere, including the research stations. There are no ants in Iceland and Greenland, either.
