They are born there, they grow up there, they go about their daily life, and they die there too.
Lets say that there are multiple queens, each commanding multiple her own colonies of ants. Every ant will scavenge for food for its colonies, but they also fight for territories, and sometimes attempt dominion over other colonies. Generations of ants are born, alive, and die over time.
The ants think their problems are important, their possessions are important. Their territories are important, their dominion of other colonies are important. They think that they are important.
But they are just ants living in a terrarium.
