Escape into microscopic worlds.
Live stream preview
The first generation of ants raised by a new ant queen are called minims, and they are smaller than subsequent generations of ants. Right off the bat, the young female ants will tend the developing brood and venture above ground to find food to bring back to the queen and other colony members. Over time, if all goes well, these minims and their mother will give rise to a colony of hundreds, thousands, millions, even hundreds of millions of members!
