Eciton burchelli
A larger worker army ant (Eciton burchellii) carries food underneath its body, with a smaller worker keeping the back end from dragging. Serving as living road fill, the tiniest ants will lie in any holes in the trail to make transportation smoother. Photo © Mark W. Moffett/Minden Pictures
