Added on: 11/2/2006
Article number: paap0001
Keywords:
None +

Big and long- legged antspecies that combines several preferences of other antspecies. Pachycondyla apicalis have almost the same visual ability as Myrmecia (bulldogant), furthermore apicalis is highly adaptive (learns quick to accept food offered by hand) and is able to stridulate clearly hearable just as Paraponera and Atta.Unlike to most of the other antspecies apicalis do not depend on chemical traces because it predominantly navigate by the use of visual orientation.While transportation of prey back to the nest they use the alternative to jump off a twig and is stil able to find their way home after short reorientation (subjective study).This antspecies use the ability to lead conspecifics through tandem walks and do hunt single and also in packs.Pachycondyla apicalis is unique and not comparable with other Pachycondyla species.
