Antzilla! (Part 2 of 2)
On today’s Creation Moments Minute, see why the bulldog ants of Australia are bad news coming or going!
Bulldog ants are fast and they’re big, growing up to 1.6 inches in length. This makes them among the largest ants in the world. Their long mandibles are menacing, especially with their rows of long teeth. But they’re even more dangerous at their posterior end, where their venomous stinger is located. The ant’s aggressive behavior is so famous, it was even immortalized in one of philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer’s major works. “If it is cut in two,” he wrote, “a battle begins between the head and the tail. The head seizes the tail in its teeth, and the tail defends itself bravely by stinging the head.”
While aggressive behavior is the rule in a world that has been corrupted by sin, Christians exhibit a different kind of behavior – looking out for the benefit of others.
