Leaf Cutter Ant Plate -- allow 4-8 weeks

Leaf-cutter ants are fungus farmers, cultivating their own food, in underground gardens. . They use their sharp mandibles to cut leaves from plants, and then carry the large pieces of leaves over their back. A leaf-cutter ant can carry almost ten times its own weight The leaf-cutter ants carry the leaf pieces back to their underground nests where the leaves are chewed into a pulp. The decaying pulp is stored with ant feces and fungus spores, and strands of fungus eventually grow on the decomposing pulp. This fungus is the crop that these ants eat. Here one has bitten off a piece of plate, mistaking it for a leaf

8" in diameter. Each plate is unique and may vary some in color, shape of "leaf bite" and position of ant.

My work is fully guaranteed. If you are not satisfied with the finished piece I will refund in full.

Please convo me for more accurate estimate of time and any special requests or questions.
