Formicium is an extinct species of giant ants in the Formicdae submfamily Formiciinae. The genus currently contains three species, F. berryi, F. brodiei, and F. mirabile. They were also described from Eocene aged sediments.


Appearance and behaviorEdit

These ants are first seen in The Monster Attacks 3 as ferocious eating machines that hunt in groups and they can easily take on large animals, such as cows, pigs, horses, and even people. They lived in large armies that went on foraging raids regularly, making them even more dangerous around animals.


In The Monster AttacksEdit

In The Monster Attacks 3: Cannibal Invasion, they're resurrected by Al-Qaeda and injected with the Rage Virus in order to attack humans and spread the virus into the population of England. They invade Exmoor National Park, taking over much of the forest in a matter of hours. They're also seen pursuing the protagonists during Act II of the novel (especially the first several chapters). Their destructiveness is detailed in the form of graphic animal attacks throughout the novel.


TriviaEdit

  • This is the first insect to be seen as an enemy to humans.
  • At one point in the novel, British SAS commandos are seen torching burrows made by the ants with flamethrowers, indicating that they're most vulnerable underground.
  • They're the most dangerous of all the animals used in the "Animal Armada".
