My New BULLET ANT Colony

čas přidán 7. 12. 2019
I've got Asian Bullet Ants... again! The "Black Panthers", my former colony of Asian Bullet Ants, known scientifically as Diacamma rugosum had sadly died out earlier this year of natural causes. So when I decided to get some bullet ants again, I decided to use an AC Ant Tower, a Hybrid Nest 2.0, and AC Outworlds to start a neat, new biological experiment and project that would hopefully ensure the colony wouldn't die out, and that the line of gamergates (i.e. the mated, egg-laying worker of the colony) could continue on forever, indefinitely. Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

  • They're back, guys! Yay! We have Asian Bullet Ants again! So do you think we should we rename them or not? Please remember to hit LIKE, SHARE this video, and SUBSCRIBE to join the AC Family! Love you, guys! Ant love forever!

    • moon and sun (for the ants)

    • How about instead of A and B, call them "Aim" and "Fire"

    • Nick Braman, I didn’t know that game was out there so thank you for showing me a new game to tryout but I was referencing Marvel Comics Cloak and Dagger.

    • @Lazy Mode yep, I think they could get to close in genetics, so just get more ants

    • @Nathaniel Hovelson he needs a lot alright, A LOT

  • yes there back cool

  • Oh man I hope your lid is tight haha that's awesome though!

  • Call them "Aim" and "Fire"

  • Hey AC you know that Fire ants got more then 1 queen sometimes how about they got a replacement queen would that work?

    • @The Vader Of Darth Nevermind they wouldn't be fertilized

    • I watched a queen moving vid and the Fire Nation had 7 queens, I kid you not.

  • Imagine him working with these ants and then gets stu- Coyote Peterson: *hold my stings*

  • You should name. The frist one hot cheetos

  • 12:15 dont think you can get away with using KSP music without anyone realizing

  • You are such a great storyteller! I really like your uploads!

  • Work Work Work....... I hope it works!

  • plz more ep of the black pathers i need a update :(

  • 15:05 FNAF vibes

  • I know I'm really fricking late but The gunshot gathering is perfect

  • How do new queens get made in other species?

  • Where is the fire nation 2.0?

  • Wait, is he afraid of worms??

  • I know i'm late, and know already know whats happened to the colonies, but I don't think this setup will work, as if the male of colony B mates with the gamergate of colony A, then the offspring will be related to both Colony A and Colony B, and if this happens vice versa, the colonies will no longer be compatible as all the offspring will be related.


  • 2:30 rip Chadwick Bozeman

  • 7:29 Pizza’s here

  • Du, you told us the answer why it would be a bad idea. Its because the two ant colonies are enemies and would go to war.

  • get siafu ants or leaf cutter ants

  • Ever been stung?

  • Two colonies will cross fertilize and keep each other going forever!!!!!! *Incest with extra steps intensifies*

  • I am Asian

  • This set up might work for a couple of generations, but eventually wouldn’t the two colonies’ genetics become so intermixed, that the males would no longer recognize the other colony as another separate colony which is suitable to breed within?

  • Yeah i think it well work

  • RIP Black Panther

  • It’s funny that black panther died and the black panthers got revived

  • “The black panthers, who sadly died out due to natural causes...” 😭😭😭😭😭 WAKANDA FOREVER

  • And this tim I have a plan to make sure they stay here FOREVER 😈😈😈😈😈😈😈

  • tea bag them

  • Ive had 3 ads in 2 minutes-

  • Little did he know, black panther would die again 8months later...

  • Hi A.C Family👋

  • This is like THE comfiest channel I've ever seen

  • Did y’all see that in the start the ant was disabled he only had one leg not tryna be rude

    • Lol the ant had all her legs, she was only miss in half of her front leg. She wouldn't be able to walk that well with only 1 leg.

  • Names for the new camps: eastern panther empire and western panther empire

  • under pressure

  • Hey I have a question, can the same male bullet ant breed with the same gammergate? Or do they need a different male from a different colony?

  • Whoof your playing a dangerous game here bub

  • This guy is ducking amazing. I have learned a lot about things people take forgarnted

  • 6:50 who noticed that poor ant with a chopped off leg?

  • This is how type 3 civilizations look at us

  • How do you prevent ants from wandering out from the enclosure?

  • :((((( rest in peace, black panthers. Ants and Man alike.

  • I smash ants all the time it’s so fun lmao I stomp smash and burn them, other stupid bugs as well

  • Everybody gangsta until the bullet ants escape

  • What happens if we put them inside of a gun?

  • Who knew ants could be so interesting man now I love them

  • What's the update on this?? Did the mating system work?

  • This is a channel for ants... And it has some of the highest production quality I have ever seen... It's damn near documentary level.

  • What will happen when they start interbreeding

  • Doesn’t that ant on the top have a bigger and white butt then the others 4:54


  • Wasnt the scientific name for bullet ants Paraponera Clavata?

  • Antscanada: this is my ant colony God: this is my human colony

  • Your reveal made me say “ahhhhhhh” Genius!

  • 1 million views!

  • trust me.. these ants will escape from this moron and wreck havoc over Canada.. yay i got bullet ants indeed!!!

    • He doesn’t even live in Canada Get your facts straight XD

  • This is an older video, but don't you still have problems with inbreeding down the line? The original gamergates would eventually be replaced by daughters, whose fathers would come from the other colony, making them half A half B. Continue that for a few generations and presumably, you get to a point where genetic relatedness between the two colonies would be roughly the same as between siblings in the same colony.

  • imagine these ones biting you

  • When you scroll down to the recommendations part it recommends the search "Pests" ☹️

  • Mabye can use one of those ac cotainers into a hunting ground like hells kicthen ?

  • Yo, that thing has the highest level of pain index with executioner wasp being the newest top of the highest pain index in the insect kingdom.

  • Bullet Ants are Queenless! Cool!

  • I love Bullet Ants. Excepte whe nthe ybite of course! (Not that I was ever bitten by one) I'd probably die from a suicide if I did!

  • Sweet!

  • Colony B got the shaft.

  • Because they will fight to death

  • Ummmm, I know this video is from many months ago, but I don't think you can keep the colonies going "forever" just by having two different colonies. If you continue to provide a path of allele flow between two populations, the populations' allele frequencies will converge to become similar. In other words, their genetic makeup will become more and more alike, until eventually the two colonies are nearly identical genetically. Maybe you should periodically restrict allele flow and let a few generations pass without interbreeding. This would allow genetic drift to take effect and possibly create a difference in allele frequencies between the two colonies.

  • dont get bitten now my boi. Those nasties leave a bad sting.

  • Bullet ants...ouch

  • Wow I’m a Canadian and Asian

  • VIVA LA BLACK PANTHERS! Hatfield's & McCoy's?

  • I should let you know that when I was little I had some pretty traumatizing experiences with ants therefor I have had a fear of them until a two years ago I accidently clicked on a video and was intrigued which eventually led me to get over my fear of them and now I love ants and am fascinated by them

  • How about naming each tribe after the opposing Wakandan tribes Since the last colony was the "Black Panthers", theese could be the "Panther Tribe" and the "Jabari Tribe". Two warring factions with the same origin. As too which one's which, I guess you'll have to decide @AntsCanada. But it could be cool to decorate their outwolds with a small panther and gorilla statue later on, perhaps under the feeding opening, so the whole tribe gather's under it.

  • Hey You and Welcome. My name is Mike. And in this old video were going to talk about...

  • The bullet ants will use their bullet powers to break through the glass

  • Imagine them escaping and they crawl into your bed without you knowing.

  • 12:11 that music is straight nostalgia for me. Anyone else?

  • Blast empire

  • Wouldn’t that theory still be incest? If I marry someone and have kids with them, and my kid goes and has kids with one of the people from my family... isn’t that... ???

  • Is it just me, or are the ants really blue in this video?

  • Yin and yang is perfect

  • Ooooo name them like 1st Gen Panthers and 2nd Gen Panthers I know I'm 7 months late

  • First ad i got how to get rid off ants in your garden. Ehm yea lets skip that

  • Ya that's a great idea. I hope they get out while your sleeping and sting the crap out of you.

  • i think i have them in my back yard

  • Name one black panther and the other wakanda because black Panther travel to wakanda

  • Its missing a leg!

  • Gamergate dies Next ant "I AM GOD" Male ant "its free real estate"

  • yayyyy! #antloveforever

  • Name them the guns

  • they should be named awsome and brillant

  • Ying and yang for the colony names

  • Is so interesting how the males look like a whole different species of bugs.

    • Kinda funny The gamergates are bullet or brass colour and the males are the colour of a gun or carbon and steel Fitting for bullet ants

    • You should see a male driver ant compared to normal driver ant

    • @stephanie elliott You are cool,. I mean most woman hate bugs.

    • @Rafael Linares They sure do 👍

    • @stephanie elliott yeah they look fabulous.

  • Whose watching this in quarantine 😂😂

  • 8:41 anus canada

  • I think it would be worse to loose a singular pet like a dog than an ant colony because only in my opinion it is much more intimate and a bigger bond is formed. This is an opinion.
