Amazing Ants Game

For most of us, ants may all look essentially the same—tiny, nondescript creatures that scurry around carrying things twice their size. But there are nearly 10,000 known species, each the unique product of over 140 million years of evolution. And their behaviors are just as diverse. In this interactive, meet eight different types of ants and try your hand at matching them to their extraordinary habits and abilities.—Melissa Salpietra
