Winner will be announced in next week's video on Saturday, February 18th, 2017. Good luck to all!

Happy Valentine's Day! In this week's Valentine's Day special, we take a look at some amazing ants that have workers which specialize at storing food for the colony. These specialized workers called repletes help sustain the ant colony during times of low food and water availability. Hope you enjoy this video featuring Myrmecocystus mexicanus ants. We also announce our Annual Ant Love Contest taking place on our Facebook page.
