The Honey Ants Dream. Une fourmi pot de miel lors d’un échange buccal par trophallaxie avec une reine vierge de la colonie. Les fourmis à miel font partie des fourmis omnivores. Le stockage du miellat est indispensable à la survie de la colonie et sa consommation représente 40 % de l’alimentation de la colonie. Les fourmis réservoirs sont l’objet de toutes les attentions de la part des ouvrières qui les nettoient et inspectent. Northern Territory, Australia
