The extremely powerful Giant Ants were seen shortly after the Great World War II. The giant ants were the result of radiation-induced mutation, which caused regular ants to grow in size, possibly because of an old and leaky nuclear reactor. Furthermore, the bones of the giant ant - particularly the leg bones, were considerably strengthened to take the massive weight of the giant ant, and they were hollow as well. The bone structure of the giant ant was both extremely strong and for lightweight for its size. The Giant Ants had multiple underground lairs, which were all connected to a Soviet underground base that was their main nest, where the Ant Queen was located.
