Ant Ant Ants!
This is a cooperative ant farm - owned by myself and my illustrious fellow-worker, Steve. 'Farm' is a bit of a misnomer though, since I don't think the ants will actually be breeding since they are all female workers. In fact, as the average age of female worker ants is 3 months, I believe this will be a sort of opposite of farm. What's the opposite of 'farm'? Any suggestions?
Anyway - it IS fascinating watching them! The blue gell provides them with sustenance as well as matter in which to dig!
I'm going HERE next weekend for a week for work.
