    There are vampires in the ant world, and today we meet them. A new ant colony known as Dracula ants (Stigmatomma sp.) has come to the Ant Room, and what we discover in this video about their secret blood-sucking lives, is not only mind-blowing, but is actually new to science! Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

                Hi! I just wanted to ask if you knew what material the red film was made out of because I was interested in keeping my red wiggler worms in a terrarium so that I'd be able to watch them like you do with your ants. They are also not sensitive to red light so the red film sounds like a good idea! Thanks! Love your videos!

                                    I think that its good that they eat some of their larvas because the colony (idk how to write that im a French Canadian) can grow at a lower rate
