Picture of the Day: The Amazing Strength of an Ant
THE AMAZING STRENGTH OF AN ANT
Photograph by Yu Wu for National Geographic – Your Shot
Photographer Yu Wu took this incredible close-up of a small ant biting a branch whilst holding up a rock. The location was only described as ‘beside a river in China’. According to Discovery.com, ants are capable of not only lifting, but carrying up to fifty times their own body weight! We should be thankful they aren’t any bigger!
