Pheidole obtusospinosa minor worker with dead Pogonomyrmex barbatus worker. You can see that the Pogonomyrmex worker's head has been crushed, presumably by a P. obtusopinosa major worker. The nest was littered with twitching, dismembered Pogos as the Pheidole streamed into their now undefended home.
