    With the new 'Ant-Man and The Wasp' movie debuting in theaters, I coincidentally discover a wasp-like insect in my fire ant kingdom, which opens up a world of mind-blowing discovery! In this episode, I talk about how ants and wasps are related, their modern evolutionary missing link, ant genetics, and make an incredible discovery about one of my ant colonies! This episode was shot in Ultra HD 4K resolution, except for flashback footage. Hope you enjoy this week's ant video! Ant love forever!

    So, in order to have a female, you need a male but for a male, you just need a gal??? That don't make much sense 😕, it's so strange, though, the males are pretty lazy butts huh 😆xx

    i think ants might have evolved into wasps and not the other way around, i don't know and i'm not going to research, but i think flight is way more complex than living on the ground, it would make sense that the ants just stopped loosing their wings at one point.

    Ants are smaller and are have more population which means their DNA is very diverse and so it's perfectly ok if they do happen to incent on each other.
    The reason humans cant do this is because we are all very close to each other genetically. Lemme back up. Imagine a pair of jeans(may or not be a pun), these jeans have holes and that's natural. Now you take another pair of holey jeans and you lay them on top of each other. The holes are nearly all gone, this is what it's like to mate with someone not blood related. And so if you take two pairs of jeans with similar holes , the hole are not fixed very well, and this is what it's like to mate with someone that is related by blood.
