Haha I didn't mean to traumatise you guys !  I'm fascinated by them & have
seen red bull dog ants kill & tare apart full size grasshoppers in the bulb
garden. Pretty handy little fellas to say the least lol.
Here is a couple of photos. You don't ever want to be bitten if your
strolling through the rainforest. Ive copped a sting from both & the pain
is simply unfathomable !!!!! A girlfriends large bullmastiff size dog
wandered across a nest once & got a few stings on the tummy & it went into
chronic shock & shivered for over an hour in excruciating pain. All I could
do was plunge its tummy into a freezing creek & try to reduce the venom
movement to save its life.
