I still can't get over how ants herd Aphids, but I did not know they farm fungus. It makes you wonder, did humans, when they discovered they could farm, did they watch ants? Could they have seen ants repeating a process of crowing fungus and herding aphids, just studying them and making humans at the time go 'Whoa, I can do that!' And I did not know about the suicide bomber ants, that is what I find very interesting, out of all of it. That they know that they can blow themselves up sort of and destroy ants threatening their colony, that they would destroy themselves before they'd let intruders invade their home land. Only if humans could be as simple as ants.
