Inchman ant – Also called a bull ant. It has a jaw strong enough to bite through human skin. She is big, fast and extremely aggressive. Endemically inhabits the Australian continent and is considered the largest ant in the world. It grows from 15 to 40 mm.

They attack their prey from stealth, grab and hold it with their powerful mandibles, and then stab with a deadly sting. The sting is very painful and can cause anaphylactic shock. Australian scientists are studying the chemical composition of the poison injected by ants and hope that it will help fight cancer.
