Why Are These Ants Wearing WAR PAINT on Their Faces? (NEW DISCOVERY)

    Trwanie: 19:23

    I haven't the slightest clue why my pet Dracula ants (Stigmatomma sp.) are now wearing what appears to be "war paint" on their faces. I noticed the phenomenon, while moving the ants to their new home. It's an odd behaviour that I don't think is documented yet in science. Why do you think they are doing this?

Looks like the ants at the bottom of the tower got mud on themselves when they were dumped into the corner. I didn't notice any of them putting the mud on themselves either.

some ants do a specialised form of defense wherein they actively encourage dirt, mud, and sometimes substrate all over themselves, and don't clean each other. I only know of one or two species in la selva rainforests that engage in such defence mechanisms, but they could be doing this due to feeling vulnerable or threatened, although I can't imagine why. ants are normally such tidy clean insects that when they are looking like that, and actively making an effort to get dirty, something's definitely up.

I think they put mud on their faces so possibly they want to be in the dark? But it could also be so they could recognize eachother or so their faces don't dry out just maybe.

It scares me how smart these things are. You have ants that use agriculture and farm other bugs for their milk, and now you have ants putting on war paint. They’re getting too strong. It’s like the bee movie but real life and I’m scared.
