T. Rex Ant

June 10, 2017

 

An extremely rare ant has been found alive.

 

Previously the only Tyrannomyrmex rex (T. rex for short) ants were found dead. Now a live colony has been found in Singapore.

 

The ants are named after their ferocious namesake due to their tiny mandibles reminding the entomologist of the T Rex's stubby arms.

 

Although they have a fearsome name, the ants themselves are quiet timid and will run away from other organisms.

 

Hopefully more can be found out about these shy ants.
