On the basis of experiments using monolayers of spherical grains, Aranson et al. suggest that the giant number fluctuations we observed in active granular rods may be explained by static inhomogeneity or inelastic clustering. We refute these alternative explanations and underline the evidence that the fluctuations originate in nematic ordering.
