|“|| Keep your eyes open. Up in the trees, too.|
Ants. Big ones. [One calls out] There's one. Sounds like a bird but it's a fucking ant.
— Hank and Houston conversing about the ants.
The unidentified ants are an insect species mentioned in Kong: Skull Island.
Hank Marlow said that these ants are larger than normal ants.
The roars of these ants are shrill, sounding very bird-like in pitch.
These ants lurk in the canopies of trees. The ants often make bird-like sounds to cover their presence.
The unidentified ant species is heard but not seen within the events of the film, making its calls as Hank Marlow explains what it is.
The ants can mimic the sounds of birds, possibly to avoid suspicion of both prey and predators.
List of appearances
- Kong: Skull Island (First appearance)
- It is possible that there was supposed to be a scene visualizing the ants, similar to the bug scene from the 1976 King Kong movie, as many of the monsters in the movie seem to reference classic Toho / Universal monsters.
