About the Ant

Ants are tiny, crawling insects that live in colonies, or groups, and work together to build their nests and find food. Ants have a long, narrow body and six legs, and they can be black, red, or brown.

They are known for their strong work ethic and their ability to carry objects that are much larger than themselves. Ants work together to gather food and bring it back to the colony to feed the queen ant and their young.

Some ants live in underground nests, while others build their nests in trees or bushes.

Ants are important to the environment because they help to break down dead plants and animals and recycle nutrients back into the soil. If you see an ant, watch it for a while and you’ll see how hard it works!
