The Ant Channel

quote [ AntsCanada is an organization promoting the pet ant keeping hobby, myrmecology, ecology, and habitat conservation. Its aim is to make pet ant keeping simple and enjoyable and thereby promote ant awareness and inspire conservation. ]

I have been fascinated with this channel for over a month. The other videos are well worth watching.

You can find their website and stuff to keep your own ants here at Ants Canada.

(Yes, I once did a post all about wasps and bees. You can still find that here.)

Why ants, as super organisms, are so damn smart and how human society is, in its own way, eusocial.

If you are going to stop by my profile, you might as well learn something, right? Here are some awesome ant related links:
(No, I'm not an ant scientist or anything. It's just a lovely example that people, as a whole, are smart- but ants are quite successful (perhaps more so) as well.

It looks like you were banking these for a super post! It's still worth its own post, in my opinion. The reason I limited focus to this one channel is because it already contains so many species and hours of content that I did not feel a need to aggregate more.

I've made variations of this post on old, and probably new SE. I'm a huge ant fan! (As long as the fuckers aren't in my house. Those are my god damned crumbs! All of them.)

You're just adding to my collection. Please post away. I'm only a trump-post-predator)

Also, I was watching the ants Canada YouTube channel a couple days ago. Nice guy but if he says "ACfriends" one more time I'm going to feed him to his own colony.

No no it was AC Family. That's even worse.

(But the channel is solidly good)
