Cemetery Emergence

This simulation shows how a unique cemetary can emerge in a ant colony without any communication between ants nor a global intelligence controlling all ants.
Each ant act independantly, if it finds a dead ant close to the anthill it put it away at a safe sanitary distance and create a new cemetary. If it finds a bigger cemetary it will consider it the new one and start to move the previous one in this one.
We can see in this video that after some time a unique cemetary emmerges at a safe distance from the anthill.
