My New Pet Golden Ants

20 000 Weergaven 373K

Meet my new colony of Golden Ants (Polyrhachis sp). They’re truly amazing, and you guys will love the home I have planned for them, how they reacted to it, as well as the epic feeding experiment in this video, where we try to figure out what particular food these ants eat. I’ll also really be needing your help and opinions regarding this golden ant colony in this video. Wait for the neat surprise I have for you all at the very end. Hope you guys enjoy this week's episode. Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.
