[Monster Bug Wars – Jumping Jack Ants Vs. Huntsman Spider]
This is jumping jack territory, an underground nest and a patch of forest where they forage for food to feed their larvae. The green bellied huntsman is hungry too and it’s waiting for a kill. But it has been spotted by a lone jumping jack ant. It launches at the interloper. The green flash grabs it and sinks in its fangs. But the jumping jack gets in a well-timed sting. Toxic proteins four times more potent than B venom target cells and critical organs, partially paralyzing the huntsman.
Worse still the alarm has been sounded back at the colony. More ants rush in.
The spider manages to crush one in its jaws, but has been stung again.
Jumping jack ants are really quite aggressive and they’re not going to back off just because a single ant has been killed. This is ant behavior. Once they start attacking they keep going.
The ants work as a team, creating a diversion up front, while one stings the disabled spider from the rear. Even more powerful venom floods into the green belly’s body. As toxins begin destroying the spider’s internal organs, the once pumped up and powerful legs dangle uselessly. Still the jumping jacks attack, mandible slash the spider. A blister of green blood swells from a gash in the abdomen. Still attacking with their razor sharp mandibles, the jumping jack ants lap up the green belly’s lifeblood.
