Now Playing Tracks

A couple of pages from my online book “ANTS: What do they eat?”

As you can tell from these sample pages, ants are a very industrious and communal organism, indeed, so communal, that entomologists have taken to calling ant nests “superorganisms”.

It’s so damn creepy it makes my skin crawl. And yet I can’t help thinking of all the folks in an old folks home behaving like a superorganism as well, which stops my skin from crawling, and I begin to laugh.

Enjoy my book!
