View Description
This Halloween, one of our ant colonies in the "Antiverse", i.e. the Ant Room, will be in for an interesting treat! In an attempt to increase their chances of survival, our Dracula ant colony (who get their name from their manner of feeding from the blood of their own larvae and cocoons) is made stronger with the introduction of a larger, unrelated Dracula ant colony. Will the ant colony fusion experiment end successfully in peace, or will there be blood-shed?! Enjoy this musical Halloween edition of one of our most unique ant colonies on the channel - the Dracula ants!

What's up, AC Family?! Haha something a little different for this Halloween Episode! For the season/festive videos, I usually write poems, but for Halloween this year I thought I'd take it a step further and give you Halloween Antiverse-style! It was super hard to make but came out pretty fun!The Dracula ants are truly an epic ant colony! If you enjoyed this video, please remember to LIKE, COMMENT, SHARE, & SUBSCRIBE (hit the bell) ! Ant love forever!

The fact that there are people like this, that write 20 minutes long musicals about their beloved pet ants for the viewers on Halloween, gives me hope for the worlds future.

When you remember that Mikey is a singer and comedian, and not just an ant lover. Fantastic! Rate this up there with the Phantom of the Opera... or phANTtom of the Antiverse. :)

I love this channel so much, I used to hate ants with a burning passion. When I was young and living in a foster home, there were ants and one got in my eye and bit. I remember having to take eye drops so many times. Now when I squint one eye doesn’t close as much as the other. But then many months ago I saw AntCanada in the recommended and decided to watch it. Now I try to not kill ants. Today an ant was on my hand and I went outside and put him on the ground. I expect to keep watching this show forever!!!!!

A large colony is more likely to survive in the wild because there are more ants to protect the nest, find food, and make decisions.

Having a large colony helps ensure survival by allowing the colony to harvest more food, defend itself better, and so on. Love these, AntsCanada. You have some musical talent here!

By the way, what are the instrumentals for each of these songs? I know that "Night of the Dracula Ants" is sung to the tune of the "Hall of the Mountain King," but what about the others?

For some reason, some people are hating the musicals because they found it cringey. I liked the musical. It was a very creative and artistic way to entertain and at the same time, educate an audience. Plus the songs were written by himself. But I understand that some people are not musically-inclined and don't like music.

Having a large colony in the ant world is advantageous because it can lead to super colonies with more workers to help gather more food, help care for more brood, defend their land and to just keep increasing the size of the colony. To answer the text question the word is nyctophilia.
