Bullet ants are considered primitive ants, because they live together in colonies but forage individually. They are almost 1 inch long and agressive. They forage for insects and nectar in forest canopy. There sting is widely considered the most painful in the insect world, causing intense pain and sometimes temporary paralysis.
