As far as I know, I’ve just uploaded the first living photographs ever taken of the rare African ant Aenictogiton. Go see.

Aenictogiton (Kibale Forest, Uganda)

Based on genetics and morphology, this creature is probably an army ant. Someone will have to spend time finding and watching the ever-elusive workers to confirm, though.

This individual was one of the treasures collected at Ant Course/Uganda in August.
