Ants Have A Weird Habit Of Circling iPhones And Here’s Why


Ants. If there’s one thing we know about ants, it’s that they’re small. But there’s another thing, apparently they’re all into weird voodoo cults where they circle phones to appease the mighty ant god, Oorah.


That’s what some people are saying, anyway… OK no one’s saying that but, you know… they might if we make it seem convincing enough.

The real reason, if you’re into this “science” lark, is said in the YouTube video description: they were affected by the “electromagnetic wave of an incoming call.” University of New England associate professor, Nigel Andrew, agrees “[They] have magnetic receptors in their antennae. If they’re travelling long distances they use magnetic cues from the earth to know if they are going north, east, south or west.”
