The praying mantice scoops the ant up and eats it, The gaint ant eater puts its long tunge into the the ant hill and scoops them up then eats it,the ant loin makes a pit and hides when an ant comes it throws dirt at ir to slip an when it does it eats it different ants have different jobs. A queen tender pulls out the eggs from the queen, the nurce ant likes the eggs to keep them moisterised. the guard ant guards strange ants from entering the hill.
