An animated series about a colony of daring leafcutter ants, with some innovative new ideas about how to make their Amazonian colony a better place.
A small colony of leafcutter ants has set up an “alternative” civilization in the Amazonian rainforest. These ants have some crazy new theories about how to organize their society. Raindrop, the protagonist of this animated series (age 3 and above), is an inquisitive young female with the temperament of a rebellious eight-year-old girl (the human variety). The wilder aspects of existence captivate her imagination, filling her with wonder, and sometimes a little dread, although she sees the grander design of life, and the beauty of the forest on display.
The Ant Colony
Leafcutter ants are vegetarians. Their names are derived from the natural world. The name “Leaf’” is very popular.
Some of the females wear their antennae up like hair, tied back with nets and scarves. On special occasions, the adults don decorative body paint (war paint, weddings).
Females outnumber males. Females do most of the hard work. The males shoot the breeze, paint portraits, weave scarves for the females and reminisce about their brief time spent with the Queen.
