A funny thing my ants did

So I was watching my myrmica sp colony, which is still only 5 workers strong and in a test tube. They were wild caught tho, so I have to feed them with a test tube portal. Anyway I put a cricket leg in there for them and they check it out a bit, but they seem more interested in their honey water. But I guess one ant wanted the colony to be interested in the leg so she goes up to the queen, and somehow grabs her by the antni along with another worker. And she drags the two of them all the way through the tube onto the cricket leg.

This is not way i expected to happen at all, but it was absolutely hilarious!

Haha, nice. We see who wears the pants, tiny pants, in your colony. I swear I can get lost in watching their antics as much as I can staring at my fish tanks. Happy ant keeping bro.

I'd be careful man, honey water ins't such a good idea for the ants...

Honey water can actually be better for them than just pure honey.
