Stigmatomma pallipes, or the Northern Vampire Ant, is one of the more elusive ants in North America. They're known for being centipede specialists, feeding mostly on geophilomorph, or soil centipedes, and for the fact that they drink the hemolymph (blood) of their larvae. Stigmatomma need high humidity, and need to be fed during hibernation.
