Indian scientist Dr. Mohamed Babu created technicolor ants by feeding colored sugar water to ants with translucent abdomens. Dr. Babu conducted the experiment in his backyard after his wife noticed the ants turning white as they drank spilled milk.
Scientist Dr Babu, mixed the sugar drops with edible colours red, green, blue and yellow and placed them in his garden to attract the insects.
By placing them on a paraffin base the drops kept their shape when touched by the ants.
The 53-year-old discovered the ants preferred lighter colours such as yellow and green.
