  1. slave ant

    A slave ant refers to an ant that is captured and forced to work for a colony of a different species. This usually occurs as part of raids where ants from a more aggressive species invade a colony of a softer species, capturing the pupae and bringing them back to their own colony. Once they hatch, these stolen ants are integrated into the colony and perform tasks such as cleaning, foraging for food, and caring for the young. This phenomenon is also known as ant slavery.
