Weightlifting ants exhibit their skills

2 posts in this topic

Exhibiting their superhuman strength these ants look ready to create an art attack by lifting pencils several thousand times their own weight.

Vietnamese photographer Thanh Ha Bui captured these incredible images in his parents back garden and, after spotting a line of super strong weaver ants marching across a branch, decided to test their legendary weightlifting skills.

First experimenting with pieces of food and leaves, he eventually ended up with this incredible shot - with each ant displaying a high level of strength.

Impressive ... but I must say I've seen greater feats as the color pencils there shown is not as heavy as it looks ....these weaver ants can pull branches together to weave a huge giant nest ... bending a sapling over with no problems ...

And they sting a good bite ... really makes you dance and hop ... only way to get them off is to jump into water ... they don't let go even if its just the heads left on you .. the heads keeps the bite on ... talk about zombies ... :lol:
