These technicolor ants were created by Indian scientist Dr. Mohamed Babu, who fed them dyed sugar water. He was inspired to conduct this surprisingly pretty experiment after his wife noticed that some ants outside their home had turned white after drinking spilt milk.

Imagine if your body changed color every time you ate a bunch of something new. Would that make picking out clothes in the morning more or less difficult? Thank goodness we don’t have semi-transparent abdomen like these hungry little ants.
