How Much Weight Can An Ant Carry?

  • 60 times its body weight
  • 30 times its body weight
  • 50 times its body weight correct

    The correct answer is: C! Ants can carry anywhere between 10 to 50 times their body weight. Pretty incredible, right? Ants have six legs and their legs are extremely strong. How strong you ask? Well, if humans could run as fast for our size as ants can, we could be as quick as a racehorse. While they might have the advantage in the strength department, we definitely have them beat in life expectancy. Typically, ants only live for around two months.
