Ants fight with wasps over deceased grasshopper

Published March 20, 2018 1,267 Plays

Rumble / Wild WildlifeA grasshopper is dead and the ants want to transport the meal to their nest. Many ants are busy to dissect the grasshopper. The wasps arrive a little later trying to get some pieces of the grasshopper too, but the ants are not very pleased with their presence.

They attack the wasps and try to chase them away. After some attacks the wasps leave the prey and the ants go on with dissecting the grasshopper. This nature scenery took place in the summer on the island Lefkas in Greece. Some shots are in real time and others in slow-motion. Hope you enjoy this battle between the ants and the wasps!
