Wow, did you know that some ants have pets!

Well, OK, they don't keep them as pets, they keep Livestock, 7 minutes in:

... they carry their partners to new parts of the plant where the sap is sweeter, just as humans herd their domestic animals to new pastures ... moving with their domesticated mealibugs from plant to plant ... they even corral their flocks under large leaves when they sense the approach of a storm...

Those tree ants are cool too.
