Now that I’ve got your attention, this Bulldog Ant (probably Myrmecia brevinoda) has come to an untimely end in the jaws of my Grandsons Venus Fly trap (Dionaea Muscipula). I have very vivid memories of the first one of these ants I found as a child. Intimidated by the mandibles I firmly grasped the head so as not to get bitten by those jaws, only to discover that the “other End” was more lethal and painful!! These Ants are endemic to Australia, large and very alert. Will coordinate a determined attack if you picnic near their home!!
This guy looks like he ALMOST escaped!!
