Caption: In a demonstration of its aggressivness, slave-making ant in Arizona attacks coin placed in its way. Slave-making ants have lost the ability to take care of themselves and their young, and must enslave other ants to perform those functions. These ants are about 6 mm in length and are common in the southwestern U.S.
