The worlds deadliest ant's... cousin.

The endemic Myrmecia esuriens (Tasmaniam Inchman) photographed at near Lake Sorell, Central Highlands, Tasmania.

This is in the same genus as the Jack Jumper (Myrmecia pilosella)... the world's deadliest ant!!!!1111

If you look carefully you can see my reflection on the ants arse. (Now there's a phrase I never thought I'd typed)
