Bullet Ant - Hormiga Bala - Folofa

Paraponera clavata


Ants are primitive traits and behaviors. The workers are between 22 and 28 mm in length and queens are somewhat larger.


The colony consists of several hundred individuals and usually roam the tree trunks and dead vegetation in small groups.


The pain of his bite is 30 times that of a bee or wasp, and those who have suffered this sting say the analogy of it with the shot of a bullet.
