The giant ant is one of several species of giant insects native to the Mazes. It appears to be an enormous version of the dorylus gribodoi, a type of army ant. These giant ants are approximately 3 feet tall and 5 feet long, weighing roughly 45 pounds.

Giant ants, remarkably, do not significantly differ in coloration from their smaller counterparts. They possess a reddish-brown body and head, with their legs being a lighter shade of brown. Their blood is yellowish to off-white, the exact shade varying depending on how oxygenated the blood is.

Remarkably quick for their size, giant ants are famous for the distinctive noise of their scurrying legs when moving across rooms. Experienced adventurers can recognize that noise and use it as a telltale that a group of giant ants is in the vicinity.

As violent as they are quick, giant ants should be quickly disposed of if encountered, as their bites are venomous. Make sure to always have antivenom on hand.

Like all members of the Bugs category, the origin of these creatures is unknown. Because they lack any magical or supernatural elements, it has been theorized that these creatures are the result of some type of past scientific experiment gone wrong, and that they have since escaped and become a species native to the Uncivilized Area.
