Cool, no problem.  Those are my favorite zoa, of all I have met.

Sometimes I fear I take my ants far too seriously.  {8^D

We could really make things happen if we could figure out some way to get them to act as pollinators.  I don't see why not: they carry grains of stuff from one place to another.  If we could somehow hack an ant, we could perhaps get them to crawl around on the trees in the spring, scoop up a glob of pollen from one flower, go rub it on another.  When that is done, go find a slug to bite, that sort of thing.
