123/365 — 5/02/12 - World of ants

In our new ant farm, that is. They arrived with this rather desiccated shred of carrot and still cluster around it for food. The ants come in a plastic tube, then after you put the plastic 'farm' together and add the special sand, you chill the ants for a few minutes (so they won't run up your arm) and tip them into their new home. Never had one as a kid, but now I do, and it is very neat!
