Default betty and boris...

...ok, my 5 year old put two ants (err..and named them betty and boris!) in one of those little insect pots yesterday, along with some leaves and sand...

well...this morning, the ants had gone...there's no way they could have escaped, but someone told me that ants sometimes eat themselves. This can't be right, can it...?? thought some of you sciency-types might know...

If you go on the net, it says that they eat their own! So they could have ate one another but you'd still expect some remains! As for eating themselves it'd be interesting to find out how that works!

If they ate themselves, surely you'd have two inside out ants? .......just a thought

Never thought of it like that! Maybe they just found some red bull and flew away?!

I'd probably end up with some mutant ant that would grow and grow, smash out of his pot and eat me, start [email protected] all the stray cats and have mutant babies then take over AD!!!!
(OMG! I've got an over active imagination this morning!! LOL)
