Ants Have their own Drug Dealers!

Post by dermy on Thu Jul 30, 2015 2:45 pm

These so-called drug dealers enter an anthill without any hindrance from the ants. Consequently, the ill-fated ants having tasted these beetles’ juice will begin to carry out a very obsessive behavior, leading them to continuously needing the beetle’s juice.

On another extreme level, the ant is even prepared to be devoured by the beetle. In fact, many specialists have seen moments in which the ant continues to suck the Lomechuse whilst, in return, being devoured in the abdomen by the Lomechuse.

This may be one of the most horrifying things I've read about the insect world, up there with Cordyceps... Shocked
