You should go on YouTube and look at bbc empire of the ants with Attenborough. It shows just such a super colony which he says has millions of queens. Sharing food and cooperating in farming aphids, etc. Maybe it's a more recent observation or maybe they're lying. But that'd definitely the impression they give.
Go get 'im, comrade.

Talk about ingestion. I read an article about how scientist studied a supercolony of ants and notice skirmishing between the ants at certain locations,where otherwise different colonies were cooperative. So they did what scientists do best ... the performed an experiment. So they gather ants from different colonies, mixed the ants together. Then they divided them up and feed them different diets. They put the ants together and a war broke out. The scientists came to the conclusion that it wasn't the scent of a different species that made them aggressive it was all due to their diet. It was like the ants' BO was effected by what they ate and the ants' BO drove them to war.

I guess to understand it in human terms it would be like if France attack Germany cause Germans smelled like beer, Bratwurst and sauerkraut.

Beer and bratwurst are great but I'd shove Germans in a false shower over the smell of sauerkraut. That **** isn't cool, dude.

When you say "stirpd" is that supposed to be "stupid?" I heard plants do have feelings.

I love the smell of sauerkraut and hot dogs, or sauerkraut and Kielbasas. But I would wear cologne that smelt that way.

Plants are too well grounded to think dirty 24/7. Plants think interesting thoughts though they may be reticent at times and keep their opinions to themselves. Needless to say their interests branch out to many subjects.

Saw it this morning

Although it doesn't go into the many conflicts that exist in anthills, and maybe more so in colonies consisting of many families, it still was a very good documentary, I thought.

I have also taken a quick look at some of Wilson's ideas which don't quite seem as radical as my first impression was, though still enough to cause noise among evolutionary theorists. I won't comment too much on it yet as I've written enough to digest.

As a closing comment for now, I do have the impression that super colonies may be made possible by the ants pheromone system. It is key to how they interact and it is also how they create infrastructure (scent highways), another arena where they could benefit from cooperation. The pheromone system is also something that sets them apart from other social hymenoptera like honey bees who do not form super colonies. At the same time, ants are kinda dumb with pheromones, like how they'll be easily fooled by anything that smells right.

Can I wear an ant cologne and be accepted in their colony?
