Extremely RARE & BEAUTIFUL FOOTAGE of a QUEEN ANT Raising Her First Babies | Day 32

20 000 Weergaven 325K

I managed to capture an incredible and rare moment between a queen ant and her young on film! Our eight queen ants with brood are all working towards growing their own ant colonies, but as I checked in on their progress after 32 days of incubation in test tubes, I was stunned by what I witnessed and filmed in one of the test tubes. Hope you enjoy today's episode! Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

    I believe that ALL creature feel and experience emotion and have Love for their offspring. I have seen many animals feel pain and sorrow for lost offspring so for anyone to think that they do not, is deluding themselves and, in my experience, use it as justification for their callous attitudes towards what they consider "lesser lifeforms". All creature experience emotion, they may not experience it in the same manner as we, or to the extent we do, but it is my firm belief that all life, feel emotions, and yes that also includes plant life as well, and I would also pose to your consideration that the Earth also feels emotion since it is also a living thing, as it is volcanically active and supports life , I believe that the Earth is a living creature as well.

    To start with, I turn 50 in May of 2022. Way back in the early 80's when I was in my early teens I would collect a group of worker ants from a colony and keep them for a time and enjoy watching them dig tunnels. My dad would make a small makeshift "ant farm" with a couple panes of glass and a frame he would custom build. I'd sit and watch the ants for hours. After watching so many of your videos - this one included - I'm totally devoted to spending time on the nature trails looking for a newly mated queen to get the full experience of watching and keeping a colony from scratch. I can hardly wait for people to ask me what a 50 year old man is doing crawling around on his hands and knees on the nature trails. I'm guessing they will assume I either lost a contact lens or took the wrong medication - or both! ;)

    Do ants need somewhere to consume water or just moisture on their nest? Do the ants hydrate from the moisture? Also, when feeding, for sugar I have honey in mind but for protein/carbs what’s the easiest and best thing to give them?
