Weird Species #1

Diacamma – the most vicious ant

In the first episode of the new Senckenberg podcast “Weird Species”, our host Dr. Julia Sigwart talks to Dr. Brendon Boudinot, head of Entomology II at Senckenberg, about all things ants. Brendon shares insights from his research all over the globe and explains what makes our tiny friends such amazing creatures. The two scientists also tackle some other essential questions: Which 1998 animated kids movie is better: “A Bug’s Life” or “Antz”? Can you make a delicious steak out of leafcutter ants? And how does an insect expert deal with an ant infestation in his house?
