Proof desert ants can count?

A great piece on how scientists tried to figure out how desert ants find their way home -- WARNING -- some ants were harmed in the making of this video!

Sounds right to me. Opinions?

The only thing you can count on with ants is that they'll ruin your picnic.

i'm glad they weren't studying puppies or (gasp) children. what is it with germans? kdp, they were the guys with a magnifying glass seeing how long it took to set ants on fire, thus making their own 'fire' ants.

i don't have a problem with that mw. this just seems so frivolous an excuse to cut the legs off something for. swatting insects is one thing, but cruelly torturing any living thing for no real benefit seems too extreme.
