Ant Towers


Fire ants are well known for their acrobatics and collective intelligence, here's a video that perfectly shows those abilities.

These fire ants form a tower as a temporary shelter until they're able to build an underground nest.

The research found that the tower is constantly moving with ants from the bottom of the tower trying to move to the top.

This ant research could lead to many applications within the robotics field.
