The tiny, little pests of our picnics, ants are in fact an amazing creature. They can withstand pressures (weights) up to 5,000 times their body weight. Imagine if we humans could do that, a 200 lb man would then be able to lift about 1,000,000 lbs (that's 500 tons). The strongest men in the world cannot even lift 10 times their body weight and the average person would most likely struggle with 2 times their weight.
Each ant measures about 1-3/8 inch long by 1-3/8 inch wide. This may seem like a large size for an ant, but there is a species in which the females actually get to about the same size as this plastic ant.
We are showing several because ants as they are part of a colony.
