In the forests of Africa a tiny but deadly creature lives in the millions. Driver ants or safari ants. They are constantly on the move devouring anything that gets in their way. This colony took over 24 hours to pass through camp. The little white things are baby ants being carried. Look at the huge soldiers compared to the workers. The jaws can draw blood if they bite you!
