Change Shape (Recharges after a Short or Long Rest). The Formicid can use a bonus action to magically polymorph into a giant ant, remaining in that form for up to 1 hour. It can revert to its true form as a bonus action. Its statistics, other than its size, are the same in each form. It can speak and cast spells while in giant ant form. Any equipment it is wearing or carrying in humanoid form melds into the giant ant form. It can’t activate, use, wield, or otherwise benefit from any of its equipment. It reverts to its humanoid form if it dies.
