I hate any of this species :big_eyes:

Army Ants The only time they stop marching and rest is while they are waiting for new eggs to hatch and pupae to emerge as adults. During this phase, the ants link their bodies together and form a living nest called a bivouac, which protects the queen and her brood.

Amazing critters but eww not for me
