By comparison, about 10% of individually numbered foragers of the phylogenetically related night-active bulldog ant Myrmecia pyriformis Smith have been reported to depart their nest repeatedly (usually twice, but up to 4 times in one individual) in a 1-night observation period [17].
Meet the bulldog ant. (Wasps and scorpions start running now.) Described as "an ant with attitude" and "very streetwise", bulldog ants (or Phil Mitchell ants) are so aggressive, so anti-ant, they hunt alone, and will turn on each other if there's no-one else around to ruck with.
