Ant Stomachs

How many stomachs does an ant have?

Ants have two stomachs.

One stomach feeds the ant itself.

The second stomach is used to feed other ants in the colony, which the ant does by secreting liquids out of their body that other ants suck up.

This is called reciprocal feeding or trophallaxis.
