Deborah Gordon hat ein paar Ameisenfarmen mit auf die ISS gebracht: „Ants carried to the International Space Station were still able to use teamwork to search new areas, despite falling off the walls of their containers for up to eight seconds at a time.“
Also, Fire-Ants are assholes: Fire ants kill and eat baby caimans as they hatch
The ants colonise more than half the broad-snouted caiman nests, where the fermenting bedding material provides the humidity and warmth the insects' eggs and larvae need.
They bite the caiman mum, forcing her to abandon the nest. Then, when the young start to hatch, the ants sneak inside the eggs to kill the babies and eat them.
