Videos: Ants carrying Dandelion Seeds

Ants are Amazing Little Workers

Have You Ever Seen an Ant Carrying a Dandelion Seed?
It's Pretty Amazing. Ants are very strong and energetic! They can carry their body weight with their mouths. They will also work as a team to carry larger insects.

When they carry dandelion seeds, it is to feed their Larve the elaiosome (which is a part of the seed that has fats), then they will place the unharmed seeds in a waste area of the nest so that it can germinate.
Watch the quick videos to see ants carrying dandelion seeds.
