Putting the strong­est hu­man weightlifters to shame, ants ef­fort­lessly pick up in­sects much big­ger than them­selves

World of Animals - - The Amazing World Of Animals -

Thanks to their small bod­ies and strong joints, ants are in­cred­i­bly strong. They can lift many times their own weight, car­ry­ing food and build­ing ma­te­ri­als back to the nest with ease. Since all ants in a colony are very closely re­lated, they work to­gether to keep ev­ery­one safe and fed, with each mem­ber of the colony will­ing to sac­ri­fice them­selves for the nest.
