    Can fire ants conquer water? Moving my massive fire ant colony into their new home, a 100 gallon South American biotope (all animals and plants from South America) paludarium (half land- half water) was an intense experience to witness! At the onset, it seemed the fire ants, a colony we call the Fire Nation, was having troubles dealing with the river we made in the setup, not to mention being completely chastised by the river's fish. Watch how the Fire Nation deals with their new life in the Selva de Fuego, and check out the surprises and twists that happen along the way. Hope you guys enjoy this week's episode!
    If you're new to the channel, catch up on your "AntsCanada Lore" with this playlist of the complete history of the ants of this channel:
    Also as mentioned in this video we had a short, interactive RU-clip Live feeding this week of the Golden Empire (link here: ) that failed due to slow internet speeds. However, a huge special thanks to all the awesome AC Family, who sent Superchats in our previous live stream this week:

    Replace Selva De Fuego with earth, fire nation with human, and our narrator with god.
    Try as the ants might, but it would very simple for the narrator to handle whatever crazy idea they come up to escape.
    Am I weird? I'm weird. I'll see myself out.
    P.S. Great video btw.

    Basically the ants are like the Flood. Individually they are very dumb. But once there are enough numbers they develop a proto-gravemind. That is why individual ants drowning couldn't figure out how to save themselves. But when enough of them got on the raft they planned an escape.

    I wonder why social insects don't have two queens.
    I suppose they don't normally surface, but if they're such a major vulnerability that can wipe out the entire colony, they should have a redundant reserve queen. They are collectively so much more efficient than humans then how come they haven't 'thought' of that? 🤔🤔🤷‍♂️
