Sleeping Ant Wakes Up To Discover It Was Left Behind by Its Colony

This sleeping ant was left behind by its colony and its reaction when it woke up was hilarious! This is a story of my young pet carpenter ants and their beautiful queen ant, who were in need of a new ant nest location. I gave the ants a brand new home suitable for an ant colony at their current stage, and watched the ants move the entire colony (brood included) into their new and improved home. The process and reaction of the ants were intriguing, hilarious, and all around gratifying to watch. Hope you enjoy this week's video! Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.
