Maggots Exploding From a Queen Ant's Body | GROSS FOOTAGE

26 000 Weergaven 508K

Endoparasitic maggots exploding from a queen ant's body is one of the worst fates any queen ant could suffer through. One of the queen ants from my collection is showing signs of such maggot endoparasitism and I asked for your help to decide on what to do with the queen. This has to be one of the grossest yet informative episodes I've ever filmed on the channel. Enjoy! Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

    It’s so sad and disappointing but that is manly because we are looking from the ants side if we were looking from the parasites side we would root for it but death is just the sad reality of nature

    I'm confused. If you euthanized the queen to also kill the parasites, how did we see the footage of the maggots? They should have been euthanized like the queen. Did they survive the freezing?
