Unusual ants. 2.
They also do the collide-and-kiss-thing that normal ants do. But up close, they look like they wrestle due to their size and boastful spikes.
I really find them awesome. The only other site that has this ant, to date, that I found says that they found it in Virashi National Park, Cambodia.
An unusual ant.
Found this on a forested mountain in Southern Leyte. I tried looking for pictures of this ant on the net using the keywords “ants with hooks” but luck only favored one. I’d be glad to know the species of this wonderful creature.
Like normal ants, they do walk in line (like why wouldn’t they, they are ants, anyway!?). Just that they are so amazing to look at at their size. They were maybe around close to an inch in length.
