        @Australian White Ibis HUMANS are also very prone to cancer. Does that mean I shouldn't have children? No.

                I live in the UK I was fascinated by watching ants not just eating the honey BUT making a chain and extracting the wasp that fell in the jar before carrying it off to their nest

                                              The vid is called ants vs honey, why call it that the honey can’t fight and he doesn’t do live feeding ( besides jawbreakers with frogs and the live cocaroach)

                                                They never let anyone go hungry. We humans have some things to learn from ants.
