Why you should be terrified of themAlthough it's not probable that you will die from being stung by this ant, the ant got it's name because so many people compared the sting to being shot by a bullet. So, there's that.

You should definitely be intimidated by these bullet ants because they can cause serious pain that no one should have to endure. These ants can be found in the rainforests and because of how small they are, people often pay them no mind—until they get stung. This ant won't do harm unless they feel threatened or bothered by someone. In Brazil, bullet ants are used during a ceremony where young boys become warriors. Being stung by one of these ants can lead to continuous pain, paralysis and shaking for several days. They might not be killer ants, but they are definitely ranked as one of the most dangerous insects in the world.
