Can a group of insects morph into a single creature? They can, when it's a group of ants. Their colonies are so in sync that some scientists call them a "superorganism" - where individuals act more like cells in one huge body. National Geographic's Antzilla reveals ants as you've never seen them before. New science explores how ants communicate, organize and make decisions, all in the blink of an eye. State of the art macro photography gets closer to these astonishing creatures than ever before revealing how a million tiny brains can accomplish wonders by working together as one.
