The 17 Best Tumblr Posts For The Week Of August 16, 2019: ants-are-fascinating
When ants die, a few days later they emit oleic
acid, which tells the living ants to dispose of
Amyrmecologist named Ed Wilson discovered
this and dropped the chemical on a
living ant. It
was immediately carried off, despite the fact
that it was still moving, and clearly not dead
"I'M GETTING BETTER"
Bring out your dead. Eh, close enough
IM NOT YET DEAD SIR
You left out the part where the ant, believing
HERSELF to be dead, stayed in self imposed
exile in the ant graveyard until the acid wore off
and she realized she was not supposed to be in
the ant graveyard
Ant 1: To the ant graveyard with you
Ant 2: But l'm not dead
Ant 1: You smell dead
Ant 2: Fair enough
Ant 1: "I thought you were dead."
Ant 2, after acid wears off: "I got better."
Ant 2, returning to the colony: i lived bitch
