do ants have dicks? i need to know asap
I find your urgency both amusing and puzzling. Ants, as you would recognize them are all female- that is, the workers, Queen, and soldiers. The colony is made up of sterile females and their mother. So, no, the ants in your house or that you see wandering around do not have a penis.
However, there are male ants. You may not realize they are ants, and they are rarely seen- as their sole purpose in life is to mate with new queens then die. Those ants don’t have penises in the sense that mammals do- BUT they do have a similar organ called an aedeagus, that is used to secrete sperm into the female from their testes.
So, in short, yes male ants do have dicks.
Here is a photo (ant porn?) taken from: A Revision of Male Ants of the Malagasy Amblyoponinae (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) with Resurrections of the Genera Stigmatomma and Xymmer (Yoshimura and Fisher 2012).
