More on this programme: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b013cj7q This is producer Ian Gray's favourite clip from the film. Honey ant scouts come across a smaller ant nest and send in a raiding party. Nothing is left behind but the repletes are the most valuable plunder - some are drained in situ, others are dragged back overground to the victor's nest.
