      The vid is called ants vs honey, why call it that the honey can’t fight and he doesn’t do live feeding ( besides jawbreakers with frogs and the live cocaroach)

                        12:22 it is used for storing food for the other ants in the colony and when the other ants like the queen is hungry, the social stomach from the ant will feed it
