On the outside edge of the swarm, a lizard flicks his tongue, watching. He’s not the only one watching. Some animals follow the ants, hoping for some of the free food the ants stir up on the jungle floor. Some animals might even try to snatch a few ants as well. But before the lizard can even think to swipe a few ants, a guard ant nips it with its enormous mandibles. Wisely, the lizard clears out before it, too, becomes food for the swarm. More and more ants are headed to the center of the swarm.
