Did you know that worker ants are all female? Or that unfertilized ant eggs are all male? Explore the strange love life of these insects in the Valentine's edition of The Brain Scoop, hosted by Emily Graslie (who we have a huge friend-crush on).

Graslie interviews Dr. Corrie Moreau, a researcher at The Field Museum in Chicago. You'll also learn some fun bug vocab words, like "spermatheca."
