One of my favorite daily news sources is the BBC News. Today while browsing their RSS feed, I ran into this headline: "Trap-building ants torture prey." As if that weren't enough, the first paragraph that came through in RSS Bandit made me think lovingly of "Silence of the Lambs": "A fierce species of Amazonian ant has been seen building elaborate traps on which hapless prey are stretched like medieval torture victims, before being slowly hacked to pieces."

Truth is stranger than fiction.
