Oh the horror!!!

So the ant that was playing dead in one of the tunnels. I think it did die. But...

I'm not sure I want to share this. I should have taken pictures.

While it was either barely alive, or maybe just freshly dead. The four other lazy ants that aren't helping tunnel decided to have a sex orgy on the dead ant, or the survivors decided to go Donner party and eat the dead one. It was really really creepy for a good couple hours! EEEEEEEE!

This morning that ant is definately dead, and the others are now ignoring it.

So the total so far is:

18 ants dead from squished vial in the mail.
1 ant dead from blue goo cave in squishing.
1 ant dead from sex orgy.
4 very lazy ants that don't want to tunnel, but will terrorize an almost dead ant.
1 ant who does tunnel and wonders/worries about the freaks that he lives with.

This is way more interesting than any Big Brother show.

They had one with pigs here in the UK a couple of years back.

I'm reading LJ sitting next to Colin going to sleep because he doesn't want to be left tonight, trying not to giggle too loudly, and failing! Poor ants, I'm glad I'm not an ant.

New vial of ants
Just wait until you add a new vial of ants. They will obviously not be from the same nest as the first vial and territories will need to be defended or exploited. The one working ant will either dig into defense mode or be the one who hopes he has soldiers (the lazy ones?).

Ant blood will be on your hands & in your goo.

This was seriously the highlight of my day. Isn't my life sad?

*giggle* I really shouldn't laugh at the misfortune of others, but it's all so silly. I hope the replacements do better!

Your ant farm stories are amazingly the most enjoyable reading on my entire friends list.
