    Weaver ant leaf nests are truly mind-blowing! My new colony of Asian Weaver Ants (Oecophylla smaragdina) have been transplanted into their newly designed, climate-controlled tropical terrarium, known as Vortexia. They were previously under threat by an intruding colony of Pharaoh ants, but that isn't the only complication. We discover a dead queen in the collection! Join us as the ants construct their incredible, signature leaf nests and witness one of Mother Nature's most incredible insects solve all challenges!

    What if you added dyes to their food? could you force this colony to turn from green/brown to blue or purple if you felt like it?

    Your effort to create tension is really more extreme than an episode of Dragon Ball.
    My mind is tired of beeing blown.

    Edit: O_O seriously, I can't believe I'd be sooo interested in ants... When I was a kid, I used to be super scared of them and I sometimes end up killing them by pinching them XD but now whenever I see an ant Im like.. "NO! FOR THE LOVE OF NATURE, PLS DON'T HURT IT" XP lel
