Driver Ant


Colonies of driver ants, which can contain up to 22 million individuals, tend to move to a new spot each day. These creatures decimate any insect that gets in their way, which is why they can keep moving without ever starving. They are mostly found in Africa, and they prefer to live in forests.

Driver ants attack everything in their path, including snakes, birds, mammals, and even human beings. They use their powerful cutting jaws to attack, and they climb trees and shrubs to get a good view of their prey.

A driver ant is large and intimidating and sometimes measures over 2.5 centimeters (1 in) long. These insects don’t usually sting their prey. Instead, driver ants rip their victims apart with their mandibles.

A lone ant wouldn’t be effective, but they travel in large packs and swarm their prey to viciously attack.
