Molding an ant colony

Ants are possibly one of the more interesting creatures on this planet. Hundreds of them will work together as if they have one brain and it’s all for the survival and the betterment of their colony. Walking around through the woods, you could have any number of layers of ant colony below your feet without knowing it.

Well Walter Tschinkel is more interested in ants than any of us. Now I’m not wild about the fact that he has to wipe out entire colonies of ants in order to do his research, but he had his idea and followed through with it and now we have these intricate and detailed representations of how exactly these colonies are structured and organized. Like it or not, you’re going to be blown away by the result.
