Fire Ants are found in the jungles and when they bite people, their syliva/spit has a toxin. When one of these fire ants bite you it physically feels like you are on fire in the area they bit you. Too many of these bites can kill you.

I know this from family experince. When I was younger my mom ordered an ant farm. She helped me take care of them. For some reason they kept getting out and we had to fetch them. Then one bit her. Almost instantly her whole arm turned red and she discribed it as feeling like her whole arm caught fire. We then found out they were fire ants. I already knew a bit about them,but I have never seen them myself before then. She actually got bit twice before eventually without a repreducing indivedual they all died out. The only time we had ants after that was at a elementery school science fair. We made sure they were not fire ants that time. We have not done any ant farms since.

Kitten's/cat's claws allow them to get up trees easily but not so easily climbing down again. It has something to do with the curved claws that can grip while going up but not down. that's why lots of cats get stuck in trees
