In view of the pathological interest the RiotACT Community takes in all forms of Formicidae, here is my contribution to the influx of giant ants [complete with a coin for scale]. While not 4-5 cm and thick as my thumb, this ant has the value of having been photographed. She and her sisters don’t seem very fierce.
Who’s seen and photographed a bigger local ant?
