Army ants are active, aggressive insects who live in temporary nests that they make by linking together their own bodies! They move their colonies regularly in search of prey that may include everything from insects to small mammals. There are about 150 species of army ant. They are found mostly in the warm tropical and subtropical regions of the Neotropics in South and Central America. In Africa, similar types of ants – driver ants – are also sometimes called army ants.
