Ants may be small, but there’s no denying that they’re fascinating creatures. And their enchanting nature was recently highlighted in a viral video. That’s because the footage revealed the incredible lengths that one colony was willing to go to in order to wage war on a wasps’ nest.
Francisco Boni is an electronics engineering student from Florianópolis, Brazil. And aside from his passion for all things electronic, it seems that the young man also has an interest in insects. Because in August 2018 he shared a video about ants on Twitter that soon went viral.
For Boni, the footage in question amazingly demonstrated the “swarm intelligence” of ants. Swarm intelligence is a term for the collective behavior of these insects and how they work together to achieve a shared goal.
