Caption: Army ants. Close-up of a soldier army ant (Dorylus anomma nigricans) on a kapok tree (Ceiba pentandra) surrounded by other smaller ants from the same species. These ants, also known as driver or safari ants, are found primarily in Central and East Africa. They live in huge colonies containing over 20 million individuals and prey on anything from insects to larger injured animals, such as rats. The long marching columns that they form will fiercely defend anything that encounters them, using their powerful shearing jaws. Ecological Station of Lamto, natural reserve of Bandama, Ivory Coast.
