And next they devoured on the flesh of all the dead cameramen.

These ants are amazing, just learned they existed a few weeks ago. I'm glad you found a video to share.

Viral marketing for the Phase IV reboot.

Proof than colloidal silver turns you into a superbeing.

Yeah, Papa Smurf.

That's 127 degrees Fahrenheit. God damn that's hot.
jangbones
Followed by an interesting making-of feature

That job would be so fun.

That guy
Yeah, the making-of is really good.

SolRo
Honestly surprised they didn't just attack the nearest camera guy and stripped his carcass to the bone in under 10 minutes

Yet another living proof of the correct nature of evolutionary theory. Pretty much no other creature on earth has adapted a metabolism to deal with heat like these ants have.

When I was in Iraq we had days in the summer that reached about 123F, but we had evolved the ability to carry water in bottles and sunblock and AC. Still it was fucking hot, so hot that it sucks the moisture right out of your body, you shed a lot of water from sweat that evaporates instantly so you don't even feel it, you can drink a liter of water an hour and still piss brown.

Hottest I've felt was maybe 114 or 115 on a cool day in Death Valley and that is plenty.

And that's how we evolved into some of the best long distance/high temperature endurance animals on the planet.

Long as we got water, we can chase down a horse until it dies of exhaustion and overheating.

Not me, if it gets over 74 I can hardly move. The flip side is that until a couple of years ago I didn't even start feeling the cold until it was in the mid to low 50s, so I saved a lot on heating bills, but as I've gotten older I've stated to prefer the mid to high 60s.

As far as I can tell from my own body, humans aren't really adapted to live much farther south than Montreal.

Also, I am pleasantly surprised by how PoMo this documentary is. Tilt-shifting, Matrix music, going all meta by making the documentary about how they filmed the documentary, and of course puns!

That lizard has eyelashes...but not eyelashes as we know them.
