How My Ants Remarkably Survived a Famine

My pet trap-jaw ants (Odontomachus sp.) called the Jawbreakers, have managed to survive three months in their specially designed terrarium, called the Plateaus of Gaia, with seemingly no food. The springtails which I initially placed into the terrarium to multiply and provide nourishment for the ants have all but disappeared. In this video, we solve the mystery as to how the trap-jaw ants have managed to survive and thrive over the past three months, and the answer is truly amazing! Ant love forever!
