Ants are eusocial insects that live in large underground colonies.1


Ants are highly eusocial insects and live in large groups, which inhabit underground hives either burrowed out by the insects or formed from preexisting caves. Ants are divided into a number of biological castes, including workers, warriors armed with stings, winged drones that seek food sources, and a queen. Ants are omnivores, and feed on both fungus grown within the hive and on animal prey.1


Army ants

Army ants move in large swarms, forming living carpets of insects that seek to devour all in their paths.1

Giant ants

Giant ants closely resemble their smaller relatives in appearance and behavior, but can grow to the size of ponies.1

In religion

Ants are the sacred animals of the nascent demon lord Izyagna2 and the harbinger Cixyron.3 They are also among the favored animals of Zon-Kuthon.4
