Some *Ants* hunt, some just scavenge, some feed of the nectar of other animals. When they do kill their prey they tear them apart with their sharp strong mandibles.
It has been estimated that over 22,000 species of different Ant species live on earth, over 13,000 have been classified. South Africa has over 500 different species.
I took this picture of an Ant attack in my front garden at Thanda House.
This pictures were taken after dark with my iPhone XS Max.
