Ant Megacolony Covers the World


I love science articles such as ant megacolony whatever.  I don't know why but the idea is very cool regardless of any scientific value that the typical annoying tiny ants are all over the place and have the same network.  Sounds like an alien or extra-intelligent operation planted on Earth.  The very miniscule insects too small and similar to count as living beings to me are in fact up to another very smart trick.  I don't think it is necessary to mention the cool and smart things the ants have been doing as result of only their nature.  I am just not surprise they are doing bigger and smarter things now.  The worldwide network of ants operating everywhere.  That is too cool to be ordinary happening on this planet with its stupid inhabitants including humans.

Deag writes "A mega colony of one family of ants has spread all over the world. Previous mega colonies in California, Europe and Japan have been shown to be in fact one global colony. Ants from the smaller super-colonies were always aggressive to one another. So ants from the west coast of Japan fought their rivals from Kobe, while ants from the European super-colony didn't get on with those from the Iberian colony. But whenever ants from the main European and Californian super-colonies and those from the largest colony in Japan came into contact, they acted as if they were old friends."
