Facts About the Ants


I love ants and anything to do with the little hard working creatures , It’s a hobby if I can actually put something into that kind of a category, sit in a place and observe the ants movements,I love the way each one of them communicate, co-ordinate and do herculean tasks and still continue to do it in their life.

As I have been noticing them since childhood, I decided that I need to know more about them, the discovery channels gave me the input to ease my curiosity, and today I pass them onto you.

    I too find observing ant behavior pretty interesting..
    Last day I saw ants working and moving in a row. They were working quite efficiently, and the way they communicated in groups was very interesting. I noticed only the leader of the group communicated with the ants coming from the other side, with one -two exceptions. Also, the path they took was well defined so much so that it was white from the place ants used to walk( the other being a bit dirty )
