May sompopos/huge ants

May sompopos

The rainy season in Guatemala begins in May and after the first few rains, Huge ants start to come out of nowhere. These ants are known locally in Central America as Sompopos. I found a better photo which puts the sompopo in perspective in one newspaper from El Salvador, but I can’t seem to find now. I will update this note as soon as I come across the photo.
