image of Behaviour

The gustative stimuli issued from non-glucidic materials, evoke in the ants studied here (Formica rufa) the exploring behaviour. After the ant odor has impregnated the prey, transport behaviour takes place. Some specialisation occur in trinsport behaviour, some workers carrying heavy and light preys, some other only light preys. Within the limits of the preys generally carried by those ants (preys about the size of a house fly or a Sarcophaga) two workers carry one prey significantly faster than an isolated worker. This phenomenon might be called collaboration ("entr'aide").
