Leaf-cutter ant (zompopa): Called wee-wee ants in Creole, leaf-cutter ants are Belize’s most commonly noticed ants. They are found in almost all  habitats. Columns of these industrious little guys, all carrying clippings of leaves, sometimes extend for several hundred yards from plants to their underground nest. The leaves are used to cultivate the fungus they eat.
