Reading Report 9

Posted on: May 4, 2011




Fire Ant Life Raft




An engineering professor called Davis and his graduate student heard about report of ant life raft.  They say that all eggs in colony will take their way in network tunnel and when the water become up all ant join together in less than two minutes to float to keep them safe and that’s because of tiny hairs on it’s body.

In my opinion, the ant teach us how to co-operate and work together.
