Do ants build rafts? (Tao, PR China)


I happen to read your webpage on ants.I have doubt about the following story related to the ant. I came across a short story in CHinese,dipicting the ants formed a ball by hugging together and drifted in the water in case of a drought to help rescue themselves.The so-called ant ball then would be drifted towards the shore and got saved.... I am wondering if this is really true about the ant or is it just a fake and fabricated story to preach for unity?
Best wishes,
Tao


Hi Tao,

This is a great question and I came across this YouTube video here. As you can see from the video, ants do build rafts to cross water. No myth.

All the best,
