Apparently, the other ants aren’t trying to save their queen. They are mating with her. In a frenzy. As a spider eats off her head.

This footage is amazing. It’s like an insect horror movie, and should be accompanied with Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyries, or Rachmaninoff’s Flight of the Bumblebee to be truly epic.
