INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT ANTS Like all insects, ants have six legs. Each leg has three joints. The legs of the ant are very strong so they can run very quickly. If a man could run as fast for his size as an ant can, he could run as fast as a racehorse. Ants can lift 20 times their own body weight. An ant brain has about 250 000 brain cells. A human brain has 10,000 million so a colony of 40,000 ants has collectively the same size brain as a human. The average life expectancy of an ant is 45-60 days. Ants use their antenae not only for touch, but also for their sense of smell. The head of the ant has a pair of large, strong jaws. The jaws open and shut sideways like a pair of scissors. Adult ants cannot chew and swallow solid food. Instead they swallow the juice which they squeeze from pieces of food. They throw away the dry part that is left over. The ant has two eyes, each eye is made of many smaller eyes. They are called compound eyes. The abdomen of the ant contains two stomachs. One stomach holds the food for itself and second stomach is for food to be shared with other ants. Like all insects, the outside of their body is covered with a hard armour this is called the exoskeleton. Ants have four distinct growing stages, the egg, larva, pupa and the adult. Biologists classify ants as a special group of wasps. (Hymenoptera Formicidae) There are over 10000 known species of ants. Each ant colony has at least one or more queens.

    Incredible Insects of the Rain Forest
    magine that you're walking through a rain forest and decide to sit down to rest. You notice something on your leg. Ants!! They'll soon be crawling all over you… Ants Did you know…
    In Peru, one researcher reported seeing 43 species of ants on a SINGLE TREE. Some researchers believe that 30% of the animal biomass of the Amazon Basin is made up of ants. A single ant colony can include over 5-million busy members - soliders and workers (undeveloped females; never have wings; cannot mate), males (can mate with the queen), and the queen. Her majesty is one busy bug, laying up to 100-million eggs a day! She only needs to mate once in her lifetime to be able to produce at least 15 years of eggs. Although she is called a “queen,” she is more of an egg factory than a leader. Somehow, the Creator has designed ants to be highly efficient and organized as a group without a leader.

    Ants Ants are members of the family of social insects meaning that they live in organized colonies. Ants make up the family of Formicidae of the order Hymenoptera .The ant family contains more than 4.500 described species that can be found in tropical and temperate areas around the world.
    The larvae are fed from a few weeks to several months. Pupae can be naked or covered with a substance they secrete at the end of the larval state. At the end of the pupae state, the adults have reached their full size. During their growth stage, the immature ants are fed, cleaned and attended by adult workers. Commonly the pupae are incorrectly called ant eggs, but the true eggs are much smaller.
    Some ant nests are inhabited by myrmecophiles. Myrmecophiles are parasitic or beneficial residents. Since ants practice trophallaxis, a form of reciprocal feeding that comes along with the exchange of chemical stimulation, many Myrmecophiles imitate the behavior and the chemical communication of ants to get feeded by trophallaxis.

      Subject Index - Animals 1. Ants are social insects and most live in colonies which can be extremely large consisting of millions of members…there are about 20,00 different species of ants and they can be found almost anywhere and in every biome. 2. There are three different kinds of ants… the queen, and she has one purpose and that is to mate and spends her entire life laying eggs… the second kind of ant is the male who mates with the queen and they don't live very long… the third kind of ant is the female worker and she cannot produce young but she is the one that builds the mounds and supplies the colony with food. 3. Most ants build some type of mound to live in… many dig their mounds in the dirt or sand…some use twigs to make them stronger… some ants live in fallen logs or trees…most ants build a system of tunnels under their mound which connect rooms, or chambers, they use for specific purposes…some of the chambers are used to store food and some are used as nurseries…the rooms are used as resting places for the worker. 4. The ant's body is made up of three parts… the head, trunk and metasoma, or rear.

Some queen ants can live for many years and have millions of babies! Ants don’t have ears. Ants "hear" by feeling vibrations in the ground through their feet. When ants fight, it is usually to the death! When foraging , ants leave a pheromone trail so that they know where theyve been, Queen ants have wings, which they shed when they start a new nest. Ants dont have lungs. Oxygen enters through tiny holes all over the body and carbon dioxide leaves through the same holes. When the queen of the colony dies, the colony can only survive a few months. Queens are rarely replaced and the workers are not able to reproduce.
    Although ants are frustrating when they get into your home or when youre having a picnic, ants do help the environment. They are social insects, which means they live in large colonies or groups. Depending on the species, ant colonies can consist of millions of ants.

    17. About ACO: Behavior Of Real Ants
    Explanations of what ants are capable of doing along with some ant facts. Features picture diagrams as well.

    Behavior of real ants

    It is well-known that the main means used by ants to form and maintain the line is a pheromone trail. Ants deposit a certain amount of pheromone while walking, and each ant probabilistically prefers to follow a direction rich in pheromone rather than a poorer one. This elementary behavior of real ants can be used to explain how they can find the shortest path which reconnects a broken line after the sudden appearance of an unexpected obstacle has interrupted the initial path (see next figure). In fact, once the obstacle has appeared, those ants which are just in front of the obstacle cannot continue to follow the pheromone trail and therefore they have to choose between turning right or left. In this situation we can expect half the ants to choose to turn right and the other half to turn left. The very same situation can be found on the other side of the obstacle (see next figure). It is interesting to note that those ants which choose, by chance, the shorter path around the obstacle will more rapidly reconstitute the interrupted pheromone trail compared to those which choose the longer path. Hence, the shorter path will receive a higher amount of pheromone in the time unit and this will in turn cause a higher number of ants to choose the shorter path. Due to this positive feedback (autocatalytic) process, very soon all the ants will choose the shorter path (see next figure). The most interesting aspect of this autocatalytic process is that finding the shortest path around the obstacle seems to be an emergent property of the interaction between the obstacle shape and ants distributed behavior: Although all ants move at approximately the same speed and deposit a pheromone trail at approximately the same rate, it is a fact that it takes longer to contour obstacles on their longer side than on their shorter side which makes the pheromone trail accumulate quicker on the shorter side. It is the ants preference for higher pheromone trail levels which makes this accumulation still quicker on the shorter path.
