     From time to time in the game you will run across various Ants with purple names indicating that they are bots. But what are they? And what is their purpose?
     There are two types of Ants. The main type were created by one of the game developers as an experiment in AI. They have names like Ant_Queen, Ant_Store, Ant_5 and Red_Ant_7. These ants can explore maps, fight creatures and yes, even grab bags they see on the ground (even your death bag!). As they develop and level their size increases.
     The other types of Ants are those that players can rent: Pet Ants. Yes, you read correctly, you could have your own Ant to follow you around the game for a few real life $$. Before you get ideas of riches and having your own personal mule or protector, these are for entertainment value and must respect all the rules, including the illegal multi (#5) rule.
     You may even see a Pet Ant in the form of a fox. These are uber Pet Ants for only the coolest of game players. They do cost more, but half of the money is donated to Eternal Lands to help offset the costs of hosting a free game.

Notes: Pet Ants are like children and need to be trained to use map flags, boats and doors. Every time the "tport" command is used the Pet Ant will attempt to USE a nearby object. Make sure it is close to the item it needs to try.
Training Pet Ants takes patience. Pet Ants will need to be told to "tport" a new door, etc many times before it learns the right object.
As they learn of a particular map flag or door, successive attempts should be instant.
