We Discovered a Rare Ant

30 000 Weergaven 552K

I can't believe we made another novel discovery in our newly bought ant forest! In this episode, we fortify our new forest/ant paradise for the native ants in my area, applying permaculture principles to build a food forest. While doing so we finally hear back from my myrmecologist & ant taxonomist friend Dr. General regarding a mystery ant we collected last week. Turns out it was a new and rare find! Hope you enjoy this week's episode! Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

    If you just stated that you discovered a new type of ant that no one ever knew was native there how do you know that the crazy ant are an invasive species? Also how do you know the other species is not an invasive species? If it took this long to discover how do you know it wasnt brought over

    Black crazy ant had a mite on its leg, so that colony is already in danger of disappearing, so may not be a threat for long. 2:11
