Sauba ant

Sauba ant

Sau"ba ant`\ (Zo["o]l.) A South American ant ([OE]codoma cephalotes) remarkable for having two large kinds of workers besides the ordinary ones, and for the immense size of its formicaries. The sauba ant cuts off leaves of plants and carries them into its subterranean nests, and thus often does great damage by defoliating trees and cultivated plants.
