Trophy Killer

πŸ“Έ by @aor.marco

Assassin bug using the bodies of dead ants as a shield against predators.

Assassin bugs prey on ants, they inject into them an enzyme that turns the ant into a slurpable snack, which is quicky sucked down by the predating insect.

The empty husks are wagoned around to make the assassin bug look larger and confuse potential predators into looking elsewhere for their nutrient fix.

It’s extremely creepy looking, but if it didn’t work it wouldn’t be done
