Meat Ants eating a frog.. Meat Ants are general predators and scavengers. They also tend soft-bug, such as aphids, to collect honeydew. The ants are active the whole year. They are fast running and foraging in large number. Their nests are large and are patrolled by aggressive workers. The Meat Ants are aggressive and they usually dominate the area that they forage. No other species of ants can be seen near by.
And if you stand on the nest they will eat you! :)
