    There are vampires in the ant world, and today we meet them. A new ant colony known as Dracula ants (Stigmatomma sp.) has come to the Ant Room, and what we discover in this video about their secret blood-sucking lives, is not only mind-blowing, but is actually new to science! Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

    Special thanks to nature photographer and biologist Alex Wild for allowing his photos to be used in this video. Check out his amazing nature photography and order some prints:
