It's just like a human raid/war and there are ant medics that determine who can be saved as well as the fallen who admit they can't be saved if they are mortally or too injured. Has anyone noticed how similar ants are to humans? they build shelters, have armies and guards at posts, farm, foragers (hunter/gatherers), form alliances etc. they network and make decisions logically, maybe even more logically/rationally than humans. more than any other species, this insect is most similar to human societies. why are ants so similar to humans in their social structure and how they build 'empires' and cities etc unlike mammals we are related to?
