Ants Have Slavery… And Slavery Rebellions

ant

Ants are sort of insane.  First off, some species of ant create massive farms of fungi underground, sort of like the first human civilizations.   Not only do they farm, they also get other ant colonies to do it for them by capturing enemy ants and using them as worker slaves (again, sound familiar?).

But that’s not all.  Those same slave ants obviously get pretty pissed and eventually decided that instead of caring for the eggs of their oppressors, their going to murder them (see picture).  Pretty soon the slaver ants population is crippled and the colony that the slave ants were originally from doesn’t have to worry about kidnapping anymore.

Nature can be pretty fucked up.
