• Ants have leaders and followers, just like humans do.
• Some ants are adventurous and bold while others are more timid and shy. Can you spot the fearless explorers?
• Some ants understand the importance of cooperation while others seem to bumble around getting in everyone’s way, slowing down the work wherever they go.
• Some ants are hard workers while others seem to hardly ever work.
• Some ants don’t seem to understand the notion of “quitting” carrying huge loads up steep tunnels and hills. When they overbalance and fall down, they invariably get up and try again and again.
While ants are among the easiest “pets” in the world to care for, they are also among the most fascinating creatures you will ever observe. Experience this fascinating timeless classic for the first time or all over again and get a peek into the amazing underground world of the ant.
