Movie 3.

An example cutting a thin ®Parafilm pseudoleaf showing behavioural flexibility and the relevance of sensory information obtained from the position of the leaf edge to control the shape of the fragment to be cut after contact with the perpendicular leaf edge, the ant changed the direction of the cut and continued along a straight line.
