Ant foot. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the tip of a leg 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). Leg bristles and hair-like sensory structures are also seen.
