The Atta ants are back!

The long-awaited Atta ants are finally back! And they promise to give you an eyeful! 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 mushroom that feeds the entire colony. No arguments here!

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.
