Do Ants Count Their Steps? Watch this Great 4 Minute Video to Find Out

On the day after Thanksgiving, NPR decided to strangely dump a fantastic piece of evergreen content on the internet. Why they would choose to do this on a day when more people weren't paying attention I don't know. It's an animated video that humorously illustrates an experiment that was designed to find out if ants have internal pedometers-- basically, if when they go back and forth to the nest they are counting their steps.
