I was cruising some insect blogs today and came across a link at Dragonfly Woman's blog (here) about a study done a couple years ago that proved ants (or at least some ants) can count. She had come across a cartoon done by National Public Radio that explains the whole thing. So, of course, I had to check it out. It is not only a funny little cartoon, but it also explains the science behind the study pretty well. And it's just another example of how varied and wonderful the life is on this planet. So, here' the link to the cartoon/story. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
