How many different types of ants are there?

    As of 2006, there are 11,880 known ant species! That is an incredible amount. Most of them live in places where the climate is hot.

    What is unique about ants is that they are considered “superorganisms”, meaning that although they are so many of them in a colony, they seem to all operate as a single entity.

    Lots!  One site says more than 12,000 while another says there could be more than 20,000!  Many different species have evolved to fill different ecological niches.
