Dr. Mohamed Babus Rainbow-Ants

Dr. Mohamed Babu aus Indien hat Ameisen, nachdem seine Frau festgestellt hatte, dass die weiß wurden, wenn sie verschüttete Milch trinken, gefärbtes Wasser gegeben und so regenbogenfarbene Ameisen gemacht. Regenbogenfarbene Ameisen!

Father of three Mohamed Babu set up the photographs after his wife, Shameem, showed him some ants had turned white after drinking spilt milk. He gave the creatures the brightly coloured sugar drops and watched as their transparent stomachs matched the food they were eating. Some of the ants even wandered from one colour to another, creating new combinations in their bodies.
