I had soaked around 20 almonds in a shallow vessel. I left it on the kitchen’s parapet overnight. Morning, there were just 5 almonds left in the vessel. Who ate the rest of them? No one at home had taken them. Where did they go?
There was a huge trail of ants starting behind microwave and going to the window. Why are ants swarming here? Curious I pulled my microwave. And I see 8 of the soaked almonds there; ants were picking small bits from it and carrying it out of the window. How did my almonds go there? Did those tiny ants do this? Or was it cockroaches or rats? I knew neither of them was stationed at my home.
“How did almonds go there?” I kept thinking, as I picked the almonds and cleaned the ants. As I began my day’s cooking, I saw another trail of ants starting underneath my gas stove and going to the window. “Now!! what!! What’s under the gas stove?” I bent and
Underneath the gas stove saw the remaining almonds, and ants picking on to them. Now how did they go there?
Did the ants carry the almonds and hid them in two different locations, so that they could transport them in bits to their homes later? I guess so.
I conclude ants are definitely intelligent.
