Caption: Slave-making ants (Polyergus breviceps) some carrying pupae of Formica gnava during raid on F. gnava nest in Arizona. Slave-making ants have lost the ability to take care of themselves and their young, and must enslave other ants to perform those functions. They will take the pupae back to their own colony where they will be raised to serve as slaves. Slave-making ants are common in the southwestern U.S.
