The recently discovered Ice Ant is a counterparts to the Fire Ant. Whereas Fire Ants will have a red hue to their bodies, Ice Ants have a blue hue, otherwise they are similar in physical attributes and description. Atypically of most ant species, Ice Ants have a king who is the only fertile male of the species. Fertile females are called courtesans and a typical hive will have 100 or more courtesans at a given time. The remainder and most prominent members of the species of any colony are the genderless drones whose tasks include caring for the eggs/larvae/pupae, cleaning the nest, and foraging for food.
Ice Ants will converge upon and sting creatures when a colony location or the King is threatened by some action of a creature. Ice Ants venom does not cause a skin irritation, instead attacking the nervous system. The creatures will experience shuddering chills (like from a fever), a termporary drop in body temperature, and in severe cases (perhaps an allergic reaction) hallucinations. These symtoms may last from hours to days, depending on how much venom has been released upon the victim from multiple stings.
