Speaking of work and ants: Workers of the Neotropical ant genus Pseudomyrmex ferociously attack any animal that threatens their host tree. The tree shelters the ants within its hollow thorns, and produces nutrient-rich leaf nodules that feed the colony. What tree has cultivated this close working relationship with its six-legged inhabitants?

Bullthorn ACACIA (Vachellia cornigera)
