NO WE DO NOT, YOU WILL ADDRESS
US WITH RESPECT! NARRATOR: AH SORRY… DRILL SGT ANT: SIR! NARRATOR: I MEAN SIR! ARMY ANTS MARCH OVER
THE JUNGLE FLOOR KILLING EVERYTHING IN THEIR PATH. GRASSHOPPER: I SHOULD HAVE
TAKEN THE OTHER PATH, OH! NARRATOR: YOU’LL FIND THEM
IN TROPICAL RAINFORESTS WHERE THEY’RE VERY IMPORTANT
FOR THE ECOSYSTEM. BUT THEY DON’T BUILD
PERMANENT NESTS. ANT: OOH, NO WONDER
WE’RE FEELING SO “ANTSY.” [ANTS LAUGHING]. NARRATOR: EACH COLONY HAS
DIFFERENT ANTS WITH DIFFERENT JOBS: OHH HERE’S A
NASTY ONE, THE SOLDIER ANT! SOLDIER ANT: GET OFF
OUR PATH HUMAN WEIRDO! NARRATOR: THANK YOU! AND THE FORAGER ANT WHO
BASICALLY LOOKS FOR FOOD. DRILL SGT ANT: WHAT

ARE NURSERY ANTS, THEY LOOK AFTER THE
LITTLE, TINY BABIES, AWW. LAST BUT NOT LEAST,
HER MAJESTY, THE QUEEN! EVERYTHING REVOLVES
AROUND HER. QUEEN ANT: EXACTLY,
NOW OFF WITH HIS HEAD! NARRATOR: EACH ANT KNOWS
EXACTLY WHAT THEY HAVE TO DO. THEY TALK TO EACH OTHER
BY LEAVING CHEMICAL TRAILS. [ANT FLATULENCE]. ANT: PEWW, I’M NOT
FOLLOWING THAT! NARRATOR: THESE TRAILS HELP
THEM TO JOIN TOGETHER USING THEIR OWN BODIES TO
BUILD THEIR GIANT NEST! THEY KEEP IT TOGETHER UNTIL
THE QUEEN LAYS HER EGGS AND THEN THEY BREAK IT
DOWN AND MOVE ON. ANT: OH WE JUST BUILT THIS. [ANTS GROANING]. NARRATOR: THEY MIGHT GIVE
YOU THE ‘CREEPY CRAWLIES BUT THE ARMY ANT IS
QUITE THE AMAZING ANIMAL!
