Dracula ants are a truly unique species! They often forage underground, making them somewhat rare to come across.
The adult ants drink the blood of their prey to feed their larvae, giving them their common name, Dracula ants.
They are quite slow moving but do possess a sting, so care must be taken when raising these ants.
