Re ants: My gut feeling is that if they're going about their business quietly, then it's a colony. If they're swarming up your leg and biting the crap out of you en masse, it's an army.

Re Poison Frogs: I decided to do a little research about the Golden Poison Dart Frog and I came across something a little bit interesting. It turns out that in the Scientific Classification of the frog the name is; Phylobates Terribilis. I assume it was named this because of its poisonous nature but i still find it interesting.

Another great show! I work with, though sadly not while in the air, peregrine falcons and other raptors [started at the SF Zoo, BTW]. The 'stoop' of a peregrine falcon is currently accepted at 242.5+ mph: http://www.airspacemag.com/flight-today/falcon.html Aerospace engineers are still investigating their secrets. The ideal mathematical velocity is over 290+ mph.

Rock on, keep 'em coming.
