video Green butt ants- Daintree rainforest, Australia

Ants are most amazing creatures not just because of there fascinating eusociality but what I love is my known fascination with their communication. In this clip I have in my mind some hypothetical conversation that they could be expressing food, danger, who they last met, where they are trying to go, where they have just been but obvious their their communication is inaudible to the human ear with the loudest of the rainforest opera that is a drowns the little but might ants out. I believe these are green butt ants that the ancient aborigines licked the butts for nutrition, apparently they taste quite nice but these ones seemed to busy for me to distract them for their conversation.
