I have to take issue with your fact that the largest (Bullet) ant is 10 times smaller than smallest fox (Fennec Fox).

Ignoring giants, who as we all know are mythical creatures and so must be discounted, it could be argued that Switzerland, as a noncombatant, (or possibly the US, as a combatant) is the largest ant.

However, if we stick to the animal kingdom, every school kid knows that the largest ant is the Eleph Ant.

The smallest of these is the Pygmy Elephant that averages 2500kg (about 1500 times LARGER than the average weight of a large fennec fox)

The largest fox is the Red Fox, that can easily be 14kg in weight, (about 180 times SMALLER than the Pygmy Elephant)
