How We Accidentally Discovered ANT # 555 and Made History

We made history in the world of science last week and had no idea! A mystery ant I spotted in my yard didn't happen to match scientific records in the global ant species catalogue. However, when we sent some specimens to the top ant biologist and taxonomist in the country Dr. David General, what he revealed to us was mind-blowing. Meet Ant # 555! Hope you enjoy this week's episode. Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.
