The Bullet Ant  a.k.a. Giant Hunting Ant

Paraponera clanata

Over an inch long.

Makes a “shrieking” noise as it attacks you.

Oh and its sting is described as, “waves of burning, throbbing, all-consuming pain that continues unabated for up to 24 hours” and is rated in the highest category on the “Schmidt Sting Pain Index”. Ouch!

Lucky for us it is a tropical dwelling beastie, so expect it here in say 2050…
