Inside an ant nest, for real this time

Ok, I feel bad about last week’s Black Post. So here are a few real photographs from the inside of ant nests:

Wasmannia auropunctata- the little fire ant - Ecuador
Formica fusca - California
Ochetellus sp. - Australia
Atta cephalotes - Central America

Just remember, though – these scenes normally exist in complete darkness.

      1. Good question, but I’d rather call them that than fusca, which seems to be strictly Eurasian. Indeed, among North American ants in that group, F. accreta is more like Eurasian F. fusca than anything else on this continent. Yes, some questions remain . . .
