Caption: Ant feet. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the tip of two legs from an ant (family Formicidae). The end of an insect leg consists of the final segment, which is called the tarsus. The tarsus itself has several segments, and here ends in a pretarsus that has two claws (orange). An ant has six jointed legs. Ants are social insects that can form large colonies. Magnification unknown.
