the amazing dorylus driver ant
Colonies of dorylus driver ant's can grow to 6,000,000 strong. This type of ant splits their trails up to resemble a tree. They are varacious predators, their main tactic is to overwhelm their prey with numbers, i would guess maybe 100 ants on any prey exseading 1 inch in length. Now what's very interesting is that they build the tunnels and chambers of their nests out of their own bodies, and that they don't have eyes instead they use chemical trails secreated from the dufour's gland located near the anus by other nestmates. I leave the rest of the article for people to write about this amazing ant.
