Everything in nature, there are five sorts of honey ants, and they all live in the deserts. Honey ants can be found in the deserts of North America, Africa and Australia.
To survive in a constant shortage of food and water, these ants “developed” an interesting way of cooking and food storage. As you know, all the ants are divided into specific castes, which include soldiers, workers, and kings. There is a special honey ant caste workers who specialize in storing honey in his own belly. In the brief periods when the desert a lot of food, those working hard to feed the other ants. As a result, workers zobiki so swollen that they looked like real honey barrels. Sometimes swollen ant can reach the size of a small grape. Living honey barrels sit in a special storage room, and at the right time, they are always ready to vomit a little honey and feed the hungry brother. Ant honey is so good that people are too happy to eat it (only if it is eaten with honey barrel alive). Locals these ants have always been considered a delicacy. On average colony of honey ants live about 30 years. John Brown was shooting material for the film over a two years and have tried to show all the stages of development of ant colony. Remove the inner part of the colony was a very difficult task, because the soil in the wilderness in its hardness gives little concrete and nests can go into the ground to a depth of three meters.
