Antmen (half man, half ant) are predatory and appear in groups in chasms. Any military dwarf can deal with one or two, but since they're found in groups of 5 to 7, it's advisable to sport a decently-sized military when engaging. They bleed white ichor, and the raws also suggest they attack as a group.
Perhaps contrary to their name, all antmen are female. Also, despite being insectoid, their corpses will rot to yield bones and a skull.
