Ants, members of the family Formicidae, have existed on this planet for longer than 100 million years. With over 14,000 known species, these organisms subsist off of an extraordinarily diverse array of life strategies, rivaled perhaps only by Homo sapiens. As humans, we see very little of the ants’ world. Occasionally, we lower our gaze enough to notice a bustling highway of ants, moving to and from a potato chip. Little else is seen. And nothing is understood. The full glory of ant queendoms exists obscured beneath a thick layer of hard earth. The goal of ColoradoAnts is to bring these complex and beautiful societies closer to the light, so that people will begin to understand what they truly are.
