Entering the Amazing World of My Pet Yellow Crazy Ants

13 000 Weergaven 210K

Welcome to the Crystal Catacombs, the name given to the crystalline and rocky terrarium home of my pet yellow crazy ant colony (Anoplolepis gracilipes), named the Golden Empire. There's some big news happening somewhere northwest of the nest, and the ants needed to tend to it asap. Come join me on an adventure through their interesting and unique lands. We even get to meet their biological friends named the Spring Cleaners, a thriving population of springtails (Collembola) that live among the ants. Hope you enjoy this week's episode! Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

      You went to check on your place and you were all alone for a weekend lets say and also say that you fell down and ended up dying outside Friday night......all those ants that you looking at there on the ground and that you love ......used you to multiply their nests......you don't come home Sunday night....... usually do....no cellular service till you are on interstate......you are found.......lips gone..... no eyes ...ballsack became a nest for the queen.......and the meal worms you were about to use to feed your pets.....have left the broken container and have begun to burrow into your soft tissue......... would you if you could say.....its the way I would want it....so your pets didn't die of starvation?

    I believe spring tails are called that due to there breeding season being in spring and they tail like appendages on there rears that are either used for breeding or hair sensory. Please tell me if I’m correct, I’m only brainstorming here 😅

    the ac Question of the week answer is why Spring tails are called Spring tails is because of their ability to spring away if needed with the help of a apendidge attached to their tails. and i don't know how to spell apendige but I tried. and if i do get the ac Question of the week right how will the ant keeping book be free?
