Ants that eat other ants

I have observed a Formica worker bring a dead Lasius worker back into it's nest and Lasius workers dragging a Formica worker home (this time it was still alive, kicking and screaming along the way. :lol: )
"God made every kind of wild beasts and every kind of livestock and every kind of creeping things;" (including ants) "and God saw that it was good." Genesis 1:25
