Ants are a social insect, and live in large groups that have one ‘queen’ ant, and many ‘worker’ ants that are responsible for foraging for food, as well as caring for the queen and her eggs. The queen is the founder of the colony, and her role is to lay eggs. Worker ants are all female, and this sisterhood is responsible for the harmonious operation of the colony while the male ants work as a army and protect their colonies. A group of ants is called a colony, or sometimes an army. Ants live in comfortable homes called ‘anthills’. Typically, ants fight by swarming, which is when multiple ants surround and attack a single ant. While ants will most commonly fight to protect their colony from other species of ants, they will also work together to defend their home against other invasive species. They hunt other insects for food but some ants have fungus inside their colony. By these funguses they take their food and nutrients for the egg and the queen. Ants don’t have lungs or ears. Ants have two stomachs and they can swim. Ants are strong than humans and the have six legs like other creatures.
