Tumblr Thread: Ants And Their Fascinating Little Funeral Ritual

We're no strangers to the fact that ants are quite the fascinating bunch of mini beings to exist on this planet. They tirelessly work their asses off to get that bread, day in and day out. And they persist while clumsy gigantor human beings amble around, knocking their belongings all over the place, and carelessly stepping on their brethren. It can't be an easy life. In this Tumblr thread we get to learn a little bit more about the intriguing funeral process that ants enact. If you're looking for some more gold from Tumblr check out this Tumblr thread about becoming an ant god.

A funny Tumblr post about the behavioral science behind ants' process for treating their dead.

Scorpion Escapes Tank, Panicked Hunt Ensues

The idea of having 25 tarantulas as pets in your home might send a pure and icy shot of chills down your spine, but for some folks, tarantulas are nothing short of adorable. On top of that, this particular pet owner also had a pet scorpion. As it turns out, that pet scorpion had a bit of a moment where it was able to break free from its living quarters, and apparently had ended up posting up right where its owner was going to lay her head for sleep. Just imagining a scorpion running across your face is enough to make the idea of sleep seem like a wildly unrealistic pursuit. Like, no thank you. 

A scorpion escapes its tank, and then a panicked hunt around the house ensues.

TIFU: Water Bottle Mishap Results In Accidental Spider Casualty

Well, that's one way to get your protein with your water. Just imagine waking up, potentially disoriented as many humans are at that moment, and then realizing that you've accidentally ingested a spider. Panic might ensue, but long as you didn't eat something poisonous (even then, how does that shake out?), you might just find yourself having to accept what is. A spider is dissolving in your body, and that's that.
