Ants are highly social insects and are found in almost every habitat on Earth. They are known for their strong work ethic and cooperation within their colonies.
There are over 12,000 known species of ants, each with their own unique traits and behaviors. Some ants farm fungi or tend to aphids, while others are predators or scavengers.
Ants have an advanced system of communication using pheromones and physical touch. They are also able to lift and carry objects many times their own body weight.
