    Ants are both insects and animals. Insecta is a class within the kingdom Animalia.

    Ant is an insect and all insects are animals so ant is an animal.

    There is a special ant heaven where all the ants go and they are all the same age, and they don't have to march in lines forever or regurgitate into each others mouths. Also there are no magnifying glasses in ant heaven. Every species of insect and animal has its own heaven or hell. For example when ants go to hell they are always being burned by a magnifying glass, and they have to regurgitate into other ants mouths, but they never get any food from the other ants, so they get hungrier and hungrier and they burn. Every time they try to dig a hole somebody kicks the dirt around.
