Ants: Day 5

Another fallen soldier (well, harvester). It appears another ant has died, this time at the very bottom corner, in a tunnel. The body is still intact, though the other ants appear to be trying to move it; some are just walking over the body.

Besides that, all is well in Antville. The tunnels are progressing, and more work on the second one has been done. The tunnel system is getting quite intricate, with tunnels connecting to other tunnels. There are even little ‘tunnels’ through the gel bits on top. Though I haven’t actually observed it, I assume the ants are feeding on those gel bits, since the amount of them is seemingly the same, despite the advances in the tunneling.

Ant Cam:

I tried some new, fancy video techniques, so pardon any partially out of focus moments.
