Their tongues would be the hypopharynx, the labia are more like the guide and sensing organs for the hypopharynx.

How do you clean something like this? Obviously it would take a long time for waste to build up, but at some point I would imagine detritus and decaying matter would start clogging everything.

If these are the same bull ants we have in WA they sting with a spike in the tail This sting is very painful but the intensity can be reduced by rubbing crushed bracken fern "fiddles" onto the wound, the relief is almost immediate. I have used this many times with success and was told of this bush medicine by an aboriginal man.

I love these things! I was always getting stung by these as kid growing up in outer Melbourne. Quite painful. Even more common were run-ins with dreaded jumping jacks that visciously attack you even without being provoked! Speaking of interesting 'ants', the other days I saw one of those bright blue/green metallic flightless wasps and took a few videos of it. Do you know much about those? I heard they're endangered?

I have seen these guys working in teams and coordinating their attacks. Kinda like wolves. One will flush out a cockroach and chase it towards where 2 or 3 other ants are waiting to pounce. Or if you get too close to their nest a lone ant will distract you while its friends sneak around behind you, climb your boots, and sting you on the back of the leg. They are vicious and will keep stinging you over and over until you get them off.

Don’t know why but the Sugar ants covering the entrance to the bull ants nest is funny maybe because it sounds like a good prank to pull on someone and it looks like they were setting up the prank and then got caught red handed

If it takes longer for the larva to grow up into workers then does that mean the workers live longer lives
Bolt Před 6 měsíci
Yes. But also it means that they are stronger as individuals.

I am an old retired wildlife photographer. One of my very first photographs was of a red Bull and Killing Funnel webs spider.. I have always been fascinated with eggsAnd never had an ant colony. I've always wanted to put two big sheets of glass together and have a red bull dog ant Farm. My email address is all lower case. It sounds like you're in Australia which is absolutely fantastic I'm just down from Taree New South Wales. Can you Dig a ball dogs ant nest in the wild and successfully transfer, Into an aquarium. Every time I've try to do this they don't live very long in the container they seem to kill themselves. Probably fumes ? I don't know maybe you can help. How long did it take you to find the queen. And how long did it takeThe queen to lay her first egg and what did you feed her on. I am very curious. I hope you stay in touch. Yours sincerely Brian Holloway

bullants are great! their behavior indicates a level of intelligence more akin to ours, than the typical "lemmings" type ant. They display clear traits of curiosity and caution. the way they know to moderate their response to threats could teach a few "humans" lessons, too. this coming from a fellow aussie thats been stung more than a few times by the little buggers lol. can i suggest, place a camera to take timelapse video of them foraging, hunting, maybe playing? do they sweep their area in any kind of systematic manner or is it random each night? lots of questions sorry lol

I love this channel more than Ants Canada, as Mikey from Ants Canada does something like: And you won't believe what happened next! Stay untill the end to find out what happened next! This is *formicarium name here* the home of *ant colony name here*! And you wont believe what happened next... But before i say that some backstory... That is the reason I like ants australia more, straight to the point and even makes a 20 min video without anything that ants canada does

You could try mushing bits of apples to make it more efficient for the ants to consume. Considering it'll take a long time for them to go through that apple core.

Why not try a red film on the outside of the tank since ants i believe can't see red so maybe they will begin building against the glass

About the weeds, wouldn't their roots make the soil more secure, and consequently create a sturdier home for the ants?
