A cute bit from real-world primitive cultures... there are some ants in Africa that were used to suture wounds. Basically, you'd grab a soldier ant (one of the big, African ants about an inch long) and direct it to bite a pinched-together wound, pulling it tight.
Then you twist the ant's head off. The jaws will stay locked, holding the wound closed. The article I read implied that the jaws of the ant even caused some additional swelling, which helped keep the wound closed.
"Bullet" ants may well make it into Nuclear Beasts. They're large, tough and have a remarkably painful bite... the sort that's been known to cause folks to pass out from the pain.
