Port: In the World of Ants

Port: Ve světě mravenců

Witness a crime in prime time. What was about to happen on a lawn in the middle of a Prague’s estate would, in the world of humans, mean a war. An army of ants related of the Polyergus Rufencens species attacked a close-by anthill belonging to Formica Fusca ants and stole all their pupas to bring them up as slaves. Such atrocities are quite normal in the ant world, they are the result of evolution processes that have been evolving for millions of years. Ants together with bees, bumblebees and wasps are among the most developed genus that does not cease to interest scientists.
