Ants Can Teach Each Other.

Nigel Franks and Tom Richardson from Bristol University, UK discovered that ants can teach each other - no big brains needed!

Certain species of ant use a technique known as ‘tandem running’ to lead another ant from the nest to a food source. Signals between the two ants control both the speed and course of the run. It is believed to be the first time a demonstration of formal teaching has been recognised in any non-human animal.
