In tropical areas of Africa, South America, Central America, and Asia, army ants are an important part of nature’s clean-up crew, eating small dead or dying creatures. Millions of army ants work together to tear off small bits of food and carry the pieces back to their nest. Follow these ants as the army advances, searching for food and carrying it home for their queen and their young.
