Ants and snails

While splitting logs the other day I happened to split one that had a branch and a hollow part in it.  It broke up an ant’s nest and the ants started scurrying around carrying their eggs and larva.

There were a number of small snails, Zonitoides arboreus, as well.  They did not seemed bothered by the ants, nor the ants by them.  The snails were clustered in holes in the wood.
