Description

A colony of honeypot ants is taking up residence in the Discovery Room. Some of these fascinating insects store sweet liquids in their swollen abdomens. Honeypot ants, Myrmecocystus, are native to Arizona, where they live in nests underground. The living display at MNA gives visitors a peek into their complex community.

This exhibition is generously supported by Isaac's Ant Foundation and dedicated to the memory of Isaac Calley
