This is a funny video clip for school children (well, at least I *hope* it is intended for a younger demographic). I found it by accident the other day and realized that it clears up a really weird statement on Wiki about Argentine ants having created a super-colony that spans the entire world! Er, what? Wiki is clearly suffering from some kind of derangement syndrome, so thank god we have this little children channel readily accesible on our I-pods.
It seems most Argentine ants outside Argentina *do* belong to a global super-colony, due to the fact that they are descended from a small number of genetically similar queens. This is apparently unprecedented even among ants.
Let alone humans...
The social conquest of the Earth already happened. The catch is it wasn´t Homo deus, but Linepithema humile.
