This one is pretty crazy.

Ants practice slavery
Many species of ants are known to raid neighboring colonies and steal eggs or larvae in a practice known as "dulosis". The forcibly acquired young are then either eaten or put to work.

This is interesting. Thank you.

I am writing a historical fiction book where the character, a guy living in the 13th century is obsessed with and terrified of ants. It never occurred to me before I saw this thread that I need to do some research about ants to avoid inaccuracies.
