The Ant With a Door for a Head
Sunday, 18 April 2010
Many thanks to Neatorama for pointing out this remarkable ant and for AntWeb.org for providing the amazing pictures.
They lack chlorophyll and do not photosynthesize but the mycotroph family of plants manages to somehow survive.
They may look like a something from another planet but they are very much of this earth. Here, we take a look at these bizarre plants and their even stranger survival techniques (Image Credit Flickr User pfly)
