AgentMatrix object representing the moving agents.

The created turtles inherit of all the data from the parent turtle,
except for the "breed" if specified otherwise, and for the "who" numbers.
The "who" numbers of the turtles created take on following the highest

All new hatched turtles are placed at the end of the agentMatrix object.
