New Headline--'Ants living in the Australian desert are ready for 'insect Armageddon'
Happily, Australian ants are not planning to take over the world (at least, we don't know that's what they're planning). They're just very flexible in responding to swings in temperature, rainfall, land use, etc.
So, yay. When Armageddon does arrive, the ants will go marching two by two....
