This is a desert ant. That small green bud you see in his pincers is about 1/4 inch in width. I tell you that to put his size into proportion. These little buddies are not your friends. Their bite won't kill you, or even make you very sick, but it hurts unbelievably and will plague you for days. So.. between these and the vipers, be careful where you choose to stop and rest.
