Some very big and angry Ants from Africa
Stuart ... please identify.
These large ants, about 3 cm in length, are ferocious and have a distinct nitrogen smell when angered. Here they actually attacked and killed a Wasp ! No idea of what species they are, but everyone avoids them.
''Paltothyreus'' is a monotypic genus of ants in the subfamily Ponerinae. ''Paltothyreus tarsatus'', the single described species, is widely distributed in Sub-Saharan Africa. Workers are very large in size ; queens are similar to workers, but larger and winged.
