Caption

Bear trap ant head. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the head of an Odontomachus sp. ant. The compound eyes (blue) are at either side of the head. The jointed antennae protrude from the centre of the head behind the mouthparts. The antennae are used for touch and smell. The jaws (mandibles) protrude to the left and right from the front of the head. The jaws are specialised to trap prey quickly, and they have serrated edges to gain a good grip. Ants are related to bees and wasps. They are social insects and form large colonies. Magnification unknown.
