There are over 10,000 species of ants worldwide and exists on every continent except for Antarctica. They fall into the same biological order as wasps and bees, which is the order Hymenoptera. Each colony of any given ant species can have up to 20 million individual ants where queens reproduce and workers forage for food.
Ants are best known for their slender builds that are separated into three node structures, their fast legs and also their elbowed antennae.
