  1. For those curious about the insect in the picture, it’s a bullet ant, Paraponera clavata. The bullet ant is a giant South American species with a sting harsh enough to make a fire ant swarm seem like a soothing massage.

  2. A picture of a single fire ant is not really all that scary compared to a burly bullet ant. I suspect that wasn’t an accidental substitution.
