Ants In Your Pants??

This coyote had been resting ever so calmly and peacefully when suddenly he started flinching erratically.  This must be where the definition of being  “bugged” or having “ants in your pants” comes from. Size had nothing to do with who won this bout of antagonistic behavior! It was the coyote who fled!

English idioms: If someone has ants in their pants, they are agitated or excited about something and can’t keep still. To bug someone is to annoy or irritate them.
