K eepers of slaves
Slave antsIn Africa there is a specie of ants called 'Beheading ants'. In order to start a nest the new queen flies to the nest of another kind of ant. The intruder then cuts off the queen's head and starts laying her own eggs in the nest. The workers are tricked into caring for these eggs and young as if they had been laid by their own queen. With the passing of time the colony gets populated entirely by the brood of the invader queen.
