Army Ants Rampage Through The Forest | The Hunt | BBC Earth

  • Published on Jul 8, 2017
  • Boasting a sensory system of 2 million antennae, this colony of Army Ants are a formidable proposition for anything alive which may cross their path. These dynamic insects, despite being blind, are able to transcend their size by working as a complete unit.

    I love how ants clean the dead and trash around us, without them there would be so much things rotting and giving diseases around.
