In life, anyone will encounter this or that kind of problem. The environment is difficult to change, but you can work hard to adapt.
The Sahara Desert in northern Africa is the largest sandy desert in the world. The climatic conditions in this area are very bad, with little drought and rain, and the temperature often reaches 60 to 70 degrees Celsius, making it one of the most unsuitable places for living on the planet.
However, in such a place where the living environment is extremely harsh, there is an ant called an arrow ant, also known as a Sahara desert ant. They feed on insect carcasses in the desert and are called "scavengers" in the desert. .
Generally, the living temperature that ants adapt to is 15 degrees Celsius to 40 degrees Celsius, but the arrow ants can survive in an environment as high as 70 degrees Celsius, and they are well adapted to this high temperature environment, which is a miracle in the biological world.
Arrow ants are so resistant to extreme heat and heat as a result of their own long-term evolution. In order to adapt to the environment, a thin layer of hair grows on the back, which can reflect 95% of the sun's radiation and reduce the body temperature. Arrow ants can possess such superb and perfect specular reflection ability, which is also unique in nature.
Arrow ants can survive miraculously in the Sahara desert. In addition to their continuous evolution and special heat resistance, there are two very important reasons. They are particularly good at grasping foraging periods and using the sun as a reference Logo.
Food shortages in the Sahara. In order to hunt, the arrow ants dare to go out for food at the hottest noon of the day. Because at this time, there are the fewest predators, and the carnivores are avoiding the heat and dare not go out.
After exiting the hole, the arrow ant will watch the sun carefully, determine its location, and then run quickly. The desert becomes very hot under the continuous exposure of the sun, and fast running can reduce the time that each foot touches the ground. Every time you change your walking direction, the arrow ants will swing their heads and pay attention to the position of the sun so that they will not get lost. When they find their prey and return, they will also measure the angle of the sun and choose the shortest and most convenient route to return to the cave.
Natural selection, survival of the fittest, survival of the fittest is an eternal law in nature. The same rule applies to human society. In life, anyone will encounter this or that kind of problem. It is true that the environment is difficult to change, but we can work hard to adapt. Ancient and modern Chinese and foreign, every adversity is often a master who adapts to difficult environments and has a strong ability to respond. This is the enlightenment brought by the little arrow ants.
