The Termite is the fifth ant in order in the zoo. It can be found in the stampede when the player upgrades their ant habitat to level 2 or higher.
The Termite is effectively a re-colouration of the Ant, with some minor variations. Its antennae, unlike other ants have a distinct bend and are parallel to the ground. Its mandible is also serrated. The Termite's head is coloured dark red, with its legs legs fading from light brown to dark grey from body to the tip. Its abdomen is coloured a light sandy brown colour.
Termite queens are the longest living insects in the world, living up to 50 years.
Note: Its chance of appearing is low due to it being a tier 4 animal. It will appear randomly but not often, and never before 1200m.
