In a paper written by Deborah Gordon and Balaji Prabhakar of Stanford University, ants instinctively speak the same language as the internet. No, not “OMGLOLFAG L2 SNIPE”, but the actual coded structure of the internet.
“Gordon has found that the rate at which harvester ants — which forage for seeds as individuals — leave the nest to search for food corresponds to food availability. A forager won’t return to the nest until it finds food. If seeds are plentiful, foragers return faster, and more ants leave the nest to forage. If, however, ants begin returning empty handed, the search is slowed, and perhaps called off.”
Ants speak TCP?!?!?!?!
