Myrmecia - Inch Ants - Mark Newton
Woomera/Roxby Downs - South Australia

Bull ants or Inch ants - one of the most primitive and impressive ants in the world,

will be familiar to anyone who lives in or regularly visits the Australian outback.

Highly alert with excellent vision, these ants will often attack on sight and can

inflict a very painful sting, with some of the smaller jumping species having been

responsible for human deaths due to anaphylactic reaction. An ant to be wary of

and in awe of at the same time.
