You Are What You Eat

Did you know that ants have clear stomachs? We didn't either until we saw these amazing pictures.

They were taken by Dr. Mohamed Babu of the United Kingdom, after his wife noticed that the ants who had drink some spilt milk in their backyard had turned white. Dr. Babu decided to experiment and created a mixture of sugar and parrafin, colored with food coloring, and photogrgraphed the ants eating.

According to Dr. Babu, "The ants preferred light colours, yellow and green...The darker green and blue drops had no takers, till there was no space around the preferred yellow and green drops."
