Montage Mondays: Ants of Costa Rica

We saw these four species of ant in Costa Rica.  Each ant is a soldier in the colony – just take a look at their mandibles!  The strong, large jaws allow them to protect their colony from predation and invasion by other organisms.

Clockwise from left: Army ant, bullet ant, trap-jaw ant, and leaf-cutter ant soldiers.

Soldier ants defend their colonies and are morphologically equipped to do so!

    So, did you let yourself get bitten by any of these ants?

    Haha! No. Jess is severely allergic so we’re really careful when she’s out there. I WANTED to be stung to feel what it was like, but got worried that it might hinder our work and fun down there. Sacrifices… –Kristie
