Did you know that certain ants out there have translucent abdomens? We must have missed that day in entomology class. Not only are there see-through ants, but they can be filled with colorful liquid to make them any color you want!

Dr. Mohamed Babu of Mysore, India shot these incredible photographs, taken as these unusual ants sipped from colorful piles of sugar water. He says that not only did he end up with red, yellow and blue ants, but some of them drank from multiple drops, creating new colors too.

I love stuff like this. Not only are these photographs incredible, but they capture one of natures incredible creations, and teach us a thing or two about science.

We better not let the guys at ColorWare hear about this, or else they’ll be selling custom-colored ants for $500 each. Although if you send in your own ants, they might provide a small discount.
