Here's a little time-lapse video I made a while back of my Pogonomyrmex rugosus colony feeding on a dead lizard.

It's gotta be way cooler to clean off skeletons with ants than dermestids.

Cool but, that had to stink a ton. I hope you had this secluded somewhere deep in a basement or something.

It didn't stink at all. They ate the entire thing in seven hours.

How long have you kept the dead lizard. If it was fresh, it wouldn’t have stunk. If it wasn’t, well let’s say drew would be wondering ‘ why do I do this?’. :P
