A Colony of Ants Mysteriously March In a Perfect Circle Around a Ringing iPhone

A colony of ants moving randomly around a working iPhone suddenly and mysteriously began marching in a perfect circle when the phone started ringing. While there’s a bit of scientific disagreement around what made the ants jump into formation so quickly, the effect is really fascinating.

In 2010, entomologist Sanford Porter explained the phenomenon of “Ant Death Circles” to James Williams of Discovery News.
