    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.

    Special thanks to nature photographer and biologist Alex Wild for allowing his photos to be used in this video. Check out his amazing nature photography and order some prints:

    I have to unsubscribe. I can't support bi weekly uploads that are to long to watch and feel like they should be broken up. To bad. I will check back maybe in 6 months. Sad.

  • Never WillCare (Dec 31, 2018)

    Hmm interesting idea. Try pricking your finger n give them a drop of blood?

    +Multifangirl _ It could still be worth a shot, for discovery, maybe, I don't feel like Googling cause I could learn it here instead, in about a month, or 6 months, or whenever he makes another vid on these bad boys, I mean bad girls.

  • Multifangirl _ (Feb 11, 2019)

    I think they would not like it as much because mammal blood is much different from insect blood
