Deep in tropical jungles lie floating kingdoms ruled by beautiful and deadly masters: They are sort of the high elves of the ant kingdoms: Talented architects that create castles and city states. But they are also fierce and expansionist warriors and their kingdoms are ensnared in a never ending war for survival. Oecophylla weaver ants.

    It's important to mention that queens don't rule over the colony. In the ants world, they queen is no more higher than the workers. The workers even go as far as to tell her what to do. They keep her safe, because they know the colony will die out without her.

    Domesticating other insects and using them to their benefit. Low energy input required. Using the environment to their benefit without harming it. Colonizing and basic defensive strategies (outposts). Complex social relationships (relatively). Architecture. It seems like within a few million years, these ants could develop our level of intelligence and become a superior being.
