ANTS!!

1. Go check out The Ant Cam
2. Ask the ants questions on Twitter.

You might be interested to know that fungus farming ants are one of the few organisms on this planet that farm (humans, fungal farming termites, and ambrosia beetles being the others that are currently known). But perhaps more interesting is the fact that they farm in monoculture, raising only one type of fungus as their primary food source. Imagine that! We can’t get monoculture farming to work well, yet these ants have been doing it for millions of years.
