SN_ANT_STRENGTH_1.jpg
A powerful ant shows off its strength by holding onto a huge insect more than 100 times its own weight.  The super-strong ant dangles the gigantic grub as it holds on to it by using all its might while hanging upside down from a branch.<br />
<br />
It had hold of the insect for around 10 minutes before taking it to its nearby nest.  Student Frenki Jung spotted the fascinating moment when the Oecophylla smaragdina ant grabbed the Lepidiota stigma in his back garden in Sambas, Indonesia.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
