Ants practice social distancing!

Nurses Humor

Published

True. According to National Wildlife magazine (NWF) black ants use social distancing to combat outbreaks of infectious disease. Workers in ant colonies are the "nurses", and foragers that are likely to pick up pathogens. Swiss and Austrian scientists studied this in Science journal. The "nurses" move the brood to safety into the nest.

Funny, isn't it? Maybe they wear tiny masks too.
