Hive Guard (Ex)

Knight ants gain Coordinated Defense as a bonus feat, and giant ants from the same colony also gain this feat when adjacent to a knight ant. As a standard action, a knight ant can use its oversized head to provide total cover to creatures behind it or sharing its space, as if wielding a tower shield.
