The bullet ant (Paraponera clavata) is a species of ant that lives in the rainforests of Central and South America. These large red and black ants get their name from their painful sting which is said to feel like being shot by a bullet.

Bullet ants are found in the tropical regions of Central and South America from Nicaragua to Paraguay. They typically live in the forest canopy in trees or other high places.

The bullet ant’s sting is said to be the most painful of any insect. The sting has been described as feeling like “fireworks going off in your muscle” and has been ranked as the most painful insect sting in the world by the Schmidt Sting Pain Index.
