Alex Wild on insects, science, and photography
As a fan of the charming Minuscule series, I couldn’t be happier about the upcoming movie. Here’s the trailer:

Those ants are more or less looking like “real” cartoon ants, while still being charming and not like someone with an extra set of legs and two straws sticking out of their heads!
I was thinking the same thing haha
What is Pheidole megacephala doing in eastern deciduous forest?
The reddish ants have ocelli. My guess is toward a workerless (cookie-can?) parasite species. And based on geographical distribution (France, maybe), it could be a Formica or Leptothorax. Ignoring the clypeal denticles and astonishing head type, of course.
But doing this kind of ID attempt I’ll taking off the fiction pleasure of the movie… The parrot-like call done by the “marauder” chief was awesome. Hahaha!
