Hello world it is did you know day again, also known as Monday, this Monday we are talking about ants.

The total weight of all the ants in the world is greater than the weight of all the humans.

There are more than 12,000 species of ants.

Ants carry more than 50 times their body weight, which is the equivalent of a human lifting a small truck.

Queen ants may live as long as 30years.

Only three types of animals fight battles in formation, humans, crows and ants.

The Maricopa harvester ant is the most venomous insect in the world, with a sting equivalent to that of 12 honey bees.

Male ants have just one job to mate.

In Thailand, weaver ants' eggs are eaten with salad.
