Bull Ants have a red-brown to black body with large, toothed mouthparts (mandibles) at the front of the head and large compound eyes. They vary in length from 8 to 40 mm.
Bull Ants feed on sweet secretions from plants and insects, but also catch entire insects to feed to their larvae. They use their powerful sting to kill prey. They can sting humans if disturbed, sometimes causing an allergic reaction.
