Ants: Living and Dead

Smells form the basis of ants’ communication. A dead ant is mistaken for a live one for some time, they communicate with it until the smell of decomposition clogs up the pheromones. If a living ant is lubricated with a composition with a cadaveric ant smell, then his relatives will bury him – they will take him to the cemetery. And they will wear it, no matter how much the “corpse” comes back until the smell disappears.
