Mexico/Chiapas: Bonampak – Golden Butt Ants

These surreally futuristic ants have golden butts! absolutely metallic in color, these ants are large at roughly an inch and the golden butt the size of a pea. Shimmering Golden Sugar Ant aka Camponotus sericeiventris in Latin, these ants are common in the jungles of Central America and down into the Amazon basin. They look totally unnatural, like some sort of transformer nanobots from the future.
