“Ant Weight-Lifting ‘Champ’ Hoists 100x Its Own Weight”

“To a human, 500 milligrams is the size of a vitamin pill. But to an ant, it’s 100 times its body weight, making lifting it the equivalent of the average American man hoisting 19,000 pounds — with his teeth. That’s just the feat one of these humble insects was recently captured performing in an award-winning photograph by a British scientist.”

‘Nuff said.
