Monday, August 22, 2011 is Day 22 of the Second Global Celebration of:
ANT APPRECIATION MONTH INTERNATIONAL©2010
Said HOLIDATE® is being staged for Today & the Remainder of August only because ANTS are as ANTeresting as can be, not BEE. That’s another Species, Folks.
Here is an incredibly interesting – ANTeresting Article about how ANTS reproduce. It deals with Cloning. Remember when Humans thought they were on to something when the cloned DOLLY, The Sheep. Evid-ANT-ly via this article, the ANTS have been on to this procedure much longer and with much more luck than we mortal men (and women) have.
The Opening Title & Paragraph states:
Scientists Discover All-Female Ant Species that Reproduces by Cloning
“A group of Amazonian ants have evolved an extremely unusual social system: They are all female and reproduce via cloning. Though their sexual organs have virtually disappeared, they have also gained some extraordinary abilities.”
You’ll see how it’s done (the right way) in the Insect World.
