In the first part of this 8 minute video the famous David Attenborough shows us how smart our Australian insects can be. It shows how stick insects eggs looks exactly like a seed and even has a sticky, tasty capsule on them just like plant seeds. These capsules encourages the ant to bring the egg back to their nest as a source of food. Because this is not a real seed, ants will quickly lose interest in the egg and voila! The egg is safe underground. Which means way from other predators where it can safely grow until it is time to hatch. A very interesting clip showing us a few of many things we do not always know about natures underground workers. You can also read more about ants within our homes here.
