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

Ecology

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]

Variants

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 Izyagna[2] and the harbinger Cixyron.[3] They are also among the favored animals of Zon-Kuthon.[4]
