Ants Carrying HUGE Things

25 03 2010

Since I’ve been in the Dominican Republic I have seen ants carrying huge dead bugs on a number of occasions. I remember back in elementary school when we learned about ants carrying 100 times their body weight (which seems to be true), but I can’t recall many times where I’ve seen it in person.

In only the last week:

  • Time #1: An ant dragging a relatively HUGE scorpion (I think) out of our living room
  • Time #2: Two ants CARRYING a relatively huge beetle up a flight of stairs!
  • Time #3: Two ants dragging a massive dead wasp across a concrete path
An Ant Dragging a Scorpion... Out of Our Villa!

An Ant Dragging a Scorpion... Out of Our Villa!

AWESOME! (Thanks to Amy who spotted #1 and called me over to take a look instead of freaking out.)

Why do you have a dead scorpion in your room?
