    Happy New Year, AC Family! Many of you may be enjoying your holidays at the moment, perhaps even traveling in this festive time! I too am currently on vacation for the holidays and am enjoying some beach and ocean, but as usual ants are always on my mind!
    This video explores the life of wild ants living on the remote, tropical islands of Maldives. Being secluded in the Indian Ocean makes the over 1,000 coral islands of Maldives a paradise getaway for human tourists during their holidays, but it also makes it a great destination for ant tourist.
    Find out how vacationing ants can impact the ecosystem of a secluded beach island and what measures people are taking in order to control invasive insects from ecological destruction. This video is packed with incredible nature footage, including an ant war and an ant-ant cow symbiotic relationship that will blow your mind!

    In under half a year, I've gone from not caring about ants at all to now being fully immersed in their world, I might not ever keep ants myself, but I love watching this channel to learn more about them! #antloveforever

                                    I knew that the ant is a spider, because it had 8 legs, but it could’ve been atendas. I read a book, and I think it said that a spider might want to look like a ant, so i could find prey, what would you attack, an ant, or a spider.

I'm 45, have worked hard all my life just to pay rent and bills etc, and I have never been outside Australia, best holiday I've ever had is 10 days in Queensland and that was only once. And here we have a simple ants fascination taking someone all over the world!! Pretty amazing. I know I'll never get to go overseas in my life time but it's good to see some people getting their lives and passions sorted out early in life. If you don't you end up completely screwed.
