Honeypot Ant
The honey pot ant is a species of ant native to the deserts of Africa, Australia, and North America.
In the United States, honey pot ants are commonly found in the deserts of New Mexico and Arizona.

The honeypot ant, which belly can expand to the size of grapes as worker ants keep on feeding it "honey" (such as sugary extracts from oak galls, nectaror even liquids from the body of preys). During tough times, the honeypot ant will regurgitate honey to feed its colony.

These honeypot ants are so valuable that rival ant colonies often try to kidnap them, and they're so tasty that Australian Aboriginal people like to eat them like candies!
