Ant Colonies


Ants live underground in colonies rather like humans live in families.

Each ant has a different job in the colony.

The most important ant is the queen whose job it is to lay the eggs that hatch into the next generation of ants and there are many different types of worker ants.

All the different kinds of ant work together as a group to keep the colony alive.
