Because Mother Nature is even trippier than dropping acid at Cracker Barrel, this is a video detailing the process by which honeypot ants turn some females into repletes — living storage tanks full of nectar for when food is scarce. Nectar can both be added to and fed from the replete via a delicious kiss to the mouth. How romantic. Am I going to suggest to my girlfriend that we roleplay as honeypot ants in bed tonight? Not unless we have a really amazing dessert with dinner.
Keep going for the video, which does have a surprise ending.
