    Curious, Army ants are roving colonies. How to they reproduce? Do they carry their larvae with them? Are they laid at the bivouac and also hatch there?Edit: Love the video btw

    "Humans have decided that war is something they don't want to do a lot anymore" That's a pretty ignorant thing to say.
