Mohamed Babus wife discovered that ants that had been drinking spilt milk in their backyard, turned white. Mohamed, a scientist from India, was amazed by the phenomenon and decided to do a little research himself. He noticed that the abdomens of the ants were somewhat transparent and thereby causing them to look white as they ate spilt milk.
So, Mohamed went in his kitchen to mix sugar drops with edible colours red, blue, yellow, and green and placed them in the garden. The result? Multi-colored ants. According to Mohamed, some ants wandered from color to color, thereby creating new combinations of colors in their abdomen. (Via: Daily Mail. Photos: Muhamed Babu).
