Paraponera clavata is a species of ant, commonly known as the bullet ant, named for its potent sting (Ant venom).
You can find them in humid lowland rainforests from Nicaragua and the extreme east of Honduras and south to Paraguay.

What you will feel if u got stung by an Ant bullet ?

Scientists have described it in the following terms: "Pure, intense, brilliant pain "

Bullet ants have long been used as initiation ceremonies to test the bravery of young Amazon warriors who were forced to wear gloves filled with the venomous insects before they were regarded as grown men.
