Learning From the Characteristics of Leafcutter Ants and Large Lizards

There is a specific order in which nature follows. Things do not just happen but rather are made to happen. This can be learnt by observing the life of the leafcutter ants. You will find these creatures cutting leafs of various plants and carrying them to their nest. These small pieces of plants are not meant for the ant’s feed. Rather, the leaves are allowed to become compost manure. From this manure, fungus will thrive, and the ant will have its feed. Interestingly, this fungus can only reproduce within the leafcutter’s nest and cannot survive in any other place. The ants belong to two types of genus: atta and acromyrmex and can be found from regions within south and Central America.

Amazing Facts about Leafcutter Ants

You will be amazed at how these complicated the leafcutter ants are. They build huge nests that can house more than 8 million ants. Just before when the queen leafcutter ant starts reproducing, it has wings. However, after reproduction, she will discard the wings and concentrate on reproduction. If she needs to start a new colony, she will carry with her some fungus as feed for her in hew new habitat. Worker ants do not have wings but rather spend their time searching for food for other ants. The soldiers will protect their nest and workers as they search for food. Male ants have wings but die immediately after mating with the queen ant.

Funny enough, leafcutter ants can never be lost. This is because they produce a strong perfume known as pheromone to trace their nests. The ants will not also eat wrong types of foods because the fungus within the nest produces some chemicals to warn the ants that the leaves they have carried are poisonous. Further, the ants have very powerful jaws that can vibrate thousand times within a second. These jaws help them to carry weighty leaves into their nest. Also, the ants are colored differently; from red, to brown, to black. The life and work of these ants teach us that life is interrelated and that one species will make life happen for another.

Rearing Large Lizards as Pets

Another interesting part of nature is the monitor lizard. Many people will fear rearing these creatures as pets for various reasons. This is because their bites cause blood poisoning. They can grow up to 10 feet and can weigh up to 330 pounds. The komodo type of these lizards grows even as long as 13 feet. An interesting fact about these lizards is that they are very intelligent. Actually, it is said that they are more intelligent than most of the mammals. You can still rear large lizards if you are not worried about the size and their nature. You will realize that they need affection and attention, just like a dog or any other pet in your home. Observing their intelligence and curiosity can also teach you a few things about nature. You could choose from various species ranging from savannah monitor, Nile monitor, water monitor, green iguana, green anole, the ackie, the black throat monitors, and white throat monitors. All these large lizards have distinct characteristics to learn from.

Resource Box For you to rear Large Lizards or Leafcutter Ants, you must have enough information about their feeding habits. You must also set aside enough space for these species to thrive. The environment should be similar to that of their natural habitat. All this information can be sourced from the online platform.
