Ants have graveyards. Two days after an ant dies, its body gives off oleic acid which creates an odor to let the other ants know that it is dead. Once the ants catch the scent, they pick up and carry the dead ant off to their ant graveyard. They do this because corpses have a lot of bacteria and concentrating the dead to one locations avoid the bacteria from spreading.
