The Brain : The Story of You – Book
With millions of members in a colony, leaf-cutter ants cultivate their own food. Just like humans, they’re farmers. Some of the ants set forth from the nest to find fresh vegetation; when they find it, they chew off large pieces that they hump back to the nest. However, the ants don’t eat these leaves. Instead, smaller worker ants take the pieces of leaves, chew them into smaller pieces, and use these as fertilizer to grow fungus in large underground “gardens”.
The ants feed the fungus, and the fungus blossoms into small fruiting bodies which the ants later eat. (The relationship has become so symbiotic that the fungus can no longer reproduce on its own; it relies entirely on the ants for its propagation.) Using this successful farming strategy, the ants build enormous nests underground, something spanning hundreds of square meters. Just like humans, they have perfected an agricultural civilization.
