Life Cycle of an Ant

13,00

Ants have been discovered trapped in amber dating to 95 million years ago, during the Cretaceous period. That they outlived the dinosaurs isn’t surprising, but today their biomass (combined weight of all ants in the world) would be greater than any other creature. Their colonies are strictly organized, with the queen choosing whether her eggs are male or female. Females will become workers or other queens, while males will become drones. Only queens and drones have wings.

Description

This set includes the tiny white eggs were ants get their start. Larvae come next, molting several times before entering a period of rest and growth as pupae. The adult ant that emerges is darker in color, but will not grow larger because of its exoskeleton.

Scientific Name: Formica

Characteristics: Ants live in large colonies led by a queen, whose only job is to lay eggs. Worker ants do the heavy lifting, retrieving food and expanding the colony, while drones exist only to mate with the queen.

Size and Color: The early stages of an ant’s life cycle aren’t very colorful, as most of their energy is devoted to eating. But adult ants have distinct coloration depending on the species. This adult ant is 2 ¾ inches long.
