After we looked at the display and started walking away, Patrick said he saw a real ant in the case. I told him that they were fake ants, but he insisted he saw a real ant, and dragged me back to the case. Lo and behold, a real ant:
We shared this discovery with a library worker nearby, and she went and shared it with her supervisor, whom laughed quite loud, for a library.
E.O. Wilson would be proud!
