The ability is also related to the position of the female in the hierarchy of the colony. Unlike other species of ants, Indian jumping ants allow females to compete for the place of the queen of the colony. Queens are generally the only ants allowed to breed, and male ants facilitate breeding. But once the queen dies, more than half of the worker ants of this species participate in a contest to solidify their position as the next leader.
