Caption: A cross-section of an ant's neck joint, part of a 3-D model created on Ohio Supercomputer Center systems, helped researchers at The Ohio State University to study the strength of the small insect. The model shows the head exoskeleton (blue), neck membrane (purple), esophagus (teal), and thoracic segments (orange).
