Immerse yourself their impressive world of social organization. Since the beginning of time, Atta ants have practiced a form of agriculture. They can grow a fungus that feeds the entire colony. No arguments here!

Here's a video by Ants Canada on the Insectarium's ant colony.

Each ant is assigned a task based on its age. Whether it is cutting leaves, maintaining the galleries or defending the colony, Atta ants communicate and work together. Intrigued? Come see their hard work unfold before your very eyes.
