Honeypot Ants

Honeypot Ants

To survive long periods without finding food, some species of desert environments in Africa, America and Australia have specialist workers who play the role of "honeypots ".

Some workers cling to the ceiling and received so much sweet liquid that the abdomen can become a considerable size... If necessary, they may return it by trophallaxis.

These valuable ants are often kidnapped by other colonies ... or even by humans who eat them!
