Caption: Group of army ants (Eciton hamatum) carrying dead insects over leaves. Army ants form huge colonies of individuals that forage for prey as a group, and inhabit only temporary nests or bivouacs, rather than the permanent nests of most other ants. E. hamatum is largely arboreal, hunting mainly other ants and wasps. Filmed in the Ecuadorian Amazon.
