An interesting series of short videos put together to make an almost documentary of how an ant colony can arise from humble beginnings. It shows how ants can adapt well to captivity if given the right care and from one single queen become many hundreds of individuals.

I love these kind of videos, thanks for posting it Antkeeper. One of the things that drew me into this hobby was watching a lone queen form an empire of thousands. It's interesting how you can see the queen's gaster gradually swelling throughout the video as she focuses more on laying eggs, eating and sleeping.
