This watch won’t help you tell time at all, but you’ll still have the coolest watch on the block – since yours will be a fully-functional (though very small) ant colony. Comes with sand, a feeding dropper, tweezers, and of course, five live ants.
Scientists have uncovered some fascinating behaviors of ant colonies. When poured through a funnel, they act as a liquid, moving around each other – but when picked up or pushed down they become a sort of solid, clinging to each other.
Not only are these photographs of ants drinking colored liquid awesome, until now, we had no idea there were see-through ants out there. Scientist Mohamed Babu captured these incredible pics.
Did you know that when ants get separated from their colony, they start following each other in a circle until they drop dead? The phenomenon looks like an insect hurricane. Nature sure is weird.
