Pheidole xerophilla

Even though Pheidole xerophila spends most of their time gathering seeds, they love to eat termites when they get a chance. Here minors are carrying a termite that the major dragged up out of the crack in the clay. I'm guessing that the clay cracking opened up a termite gallery.
