螞蟻在大自然中扮演著極多元,且重要的角色。 某日中午,走在萬安林道中,看見一隻管蛛正咬 著一團昆蟲屍體,不安的四處竄逃,近看才發 現,原來有螞蟻在牠身邊,想找個空隙把食物給 弄到手。 這個景象可能有兩種解釋:1. 這隻昆蟲屍體似乎 是頸吻亞目的昆蟲,這類昆蟲多會分泌蜜露,觸 動螞蟻嗜甜的特性。2. 體色偏紅的螞蟻多半具有 攻擊性,也有可能是受到肉的吸引,主動出擊掠 奪食物。

The ant plays an important and diverse role in nature. While walking along the Wanan Forest Road one day at noon, I came across a corinnid spider grasping the corpse of an insect in its mouth nervously pacing back and forth. When I moved in closer I realized it that the spider had encountered some ants, which wanted to steal the prize. There are two possible explanations for this encouter: 1. The insect corpse belongs to the suborder Auchenorrhyncha which secretes honeydew. The sweetness of these secretions has attracted the ants. 2. Red ants are mostly offensive and the sight of prey has led them to want to rob the spider of it.
