EMERGENCY SUTURE: DRIVER ANTS.

WHAT ANIMAL CAN BE USED IN AFRICA IF YOU HAVE A LACERATION AND FORGOT YOUR KIT?

It is an ant called the “Driver Ants”. They have large and extremely powerful jaws that can be used, in a pinch, as emergency sutures by forcing the ant to bite the wound and then snapping its body off. This leaves the jaw and head to hold the wound closed, an arrangement which will hold for several days at a time.
