Deep in tropical jungles lie floating kingdoms ruled by beautiful and deadly masters: They are sort of the high elves of the ant kingdoms: Talented architects that create castles and city states. But they are also fierce and expansionist warriors and their kingdoms are ensnared in a never ending war for survival. Oecophylla weaver ants.

    Not sure why you seem convinced that only the majors participate in foraging and fighting Majors are usually only a small part of foraging, using their large mandibles to cut up food into manageable chunks which is brought back by the workers Also when ants are defending the nest it would be ludicrous if only the majors were fighting, the smaller ants are perfectly capable of spraying acid and biting opponents and there are way way more of them I'd recommend AntsCanada on youtube if you're interested in ants
