Prey cache of the army ant Eciton hamatum

Turning over a leaf along a busy column of Eciton hamatum army ants reveals a cache of the colony's catch: ant brood from Dolichoderus and Pheidole nests. These will be carried back to the bivouac and consumed by the army ants' larvae. Cayó District, Belize.
