FIRE ANTS KILL THEIR FIRST LIVE PREY | Surprising Predatory Reaction

  zhlédnutí 1,334,289


Před 7 měsíci

My growing fire ant colony (the Phoenix Empire) is so big and hungry now, I felt they were ready to take their next step at becoming true fire ants, and engage in their first killing for food. Initially, when the colony was composed of just nanitics (first gen fire ants) the workers were frail and fearful of anything large and moving. But now, the colony is composed of a much more powerful worker force capable of being the predators nature has designed them to be. Watch what the fire ants do to the prey item I place into their outworld, how it fights back, and how it ultimately benefited the colony. Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution. #FireAnts #PhoenixEmpire

Idk why giving them live prey is wrong, but ants gotta eat. Why not stimulate natural situations too?

I do, I think they do need a bigger one but I do think that you should get rid of the old one and let them take their course let the decaying Aunt peasants let them take those to take her and then replace it and then take birth to with a nether little place where they can hide at the incubator room making giant incubator room which they can just wear the queen would sit that with a queen

he got the queen when it was fertilized, you find it his other videos, then she bore the first gen, the other ants your talking about.

Instead of taking care of a fire ant colony (which sting and many people destroy in their back yards) try growing a colony of non-stinging ants. That way you are not actually creating a Frankenstein. There are species commonly called crazy ants. Grow a colony of those.

Can you have your fire ants fight Driver Ants? Just 20 or so soldiers would be interesting to watch without too many ants being hurt. Battle is also a huge part of ant instinct. That ant party will be epic after their battle victory over such a fierce rival.
