Azteca sp.

Ants won't often eat members of their own species, but they are happy to consume the dead bodies of other types of ants. Here, fiesty little Azteca ants cooperate to lug the remains of a leafcutter ant worker back to their nest, where it will be fed to the developing larvae. Potrerillo, Tolima, Colombia
