scotto monkeypulse

ants on stilts.




I can’t tell what my favorite part is, but it’s either

  • scientists wasting budget and time to see if ants count their steps
  • the idea to put ants on stilts
  • there had to be a guy who made ant stilts and put them on the ants
  • confused ants

oh those poor confused little babies

that is adorable

(i would disagree that it’s ‘wasting’ budget and time — figuring out how insect brains work has really interesting implications for neurology and robotics, among other things.)
