Have you ever dreamed of shrinking yourself so you could go inside an ant colony and see exactly what they do in there? You may have owned an ant farm when you were a kid, but do ants really behave how they would normally within a clear plastic sheath only about 1 inch by 1 inch? Doubtfully. Playing with ants isn't just for kids as Florida State University professor Walter Tschinkel shows us in just a moment. Tschinkel replicates the form of ant colonies by pouring molten aluminum into the tunnels, letting the metal harden, and then meticulously excavating the result. NERDTREK.COMNERD TREK NERDTREK
