Giant Forest Ant

Giant Forest Ant
A common giant ant species in the rainforest, this one here was about one and a half inches in size. Caught carrying its peer's abdomen, supposedly cannibalism was about to happen. Samajaya Park, Kuching - Sarawak, Malaysia.

Well captured Liang.
I'm happy that our largest forest Ants are only about 8 mm in length.

Well, the phrase "dog eats dog" comes to mind. I suppose "waste not, want not!. Fine capture, ants are so fascinating to watch but this one seems a bit big for my liking!!

Thank you and well said, Joan! Although they're common here but I still feel their presence unpleasant :-)

Good shot.... how are they with humans? Woodland ants here i Western Europe can be bigger than those we have in the garden but I don't think they cause so much pain. Our red ants seem the worst for that.

They're called Camponotus gigas scientifically. Amazingly they're not aggressive to humans, unless they get intimidated or humans go too close to their territory. I've never got bitten by one of them before, I presume it should be painful as they have much bigger mandibles. :-)
