Ants Are Underrated

Ants Are Underrated

The least appreciated animals, in my opinion, are ants. Consider all the qualities that endear us to the large African creatures; many of them are shared by ants. They pursue prey that is larger to their relative size than even lions since they are extremely social, incredibly strong, active all day, and observed in larger numbers than wildebeest. Plus, they are fairly simple to locate.

Like An Army

Like An Army

Over 200 ant species from various lineages are referred to as "army ants" in this context. Numerous ants forage simultaneously over a small area in large numbers thanks to their aggressive predatory foraging groups, or "raids." Foraging termites are devoured by honeypot ants. When two colonies encounter the same group of these fat prey, the ants congregate at a spot known as a tournament, where the workers from each colony circle one another while standing tall on their legs. When one group starts to look too huge, its members quickly flee.

Farming And Agriculture

Farming And Agriculture

Farming isn’t done by humans alone. It may seem unusual, yet it is the case. Farming is also practiced by other ant species, but on a lower scale. Just in a different way, apterostigma, or fungus-growing ants, also grow food.

Apterostigma ants reside with their fungal garden in a small hole or sheltered place." The ants carry seeds, insect droppings, or other detritus and deposit it on the mushroom growth in these particular areas, which are frequently found in or beneath logs. But despite how messy it all seems, the ants maintain their garden.

You Think So What?

You Think So What?

Our ability to comprehend species of organisms depends on our understanding of the evolutionary processes that result in biological diversity and our ability to create useful tools for species identification. It is essential for both biologists and the general public to comprehend what species are and how to recognise them. Understanding animals like ants helps us realise that there are extremely intelligent beings living among us. Perhaps intelligence is the insects we find in our back gardens and not some cyborg.
