To get to know someone so different from myself as an octopus, and to know that the individual recognised me and even enjoyed my company, was an enormous privilege. The octopuses I came to know were strong but gentle, and the suction of their suckers tasting my skin pulled me like an alien’s kiss. – Sy Montgomery

Formicarium hive,

Demesne pismires hillock,

Goose step prospective,

We’re the same up for spatchcock,

Exemplar recollective.

An individual ant, even though it has a brain about a millionth of a size of a human being’s, can learn a maze; the kind we use is a simple rat maze in a laboratory. They can learn it about one-half as fast as a rat. – E. O. Wilson
