There’s sadness in the air at London’s Natural History Museum this week after it was revealed that the queen ant has died, causing many other ants in the colony to end up on death row as well.
This sign, posted on Twitter by user Russell Bloor, shows just how sad the situation is:
Possibly the saddest, most heart breaking “This exhibit is currently out of order” sign ever!! pic.twitter.com/NtDdKfZM7s

It is understood that the queen passed away a year ago, and will be replaced. This process occurs naturally once every few years.
