Ants vs. Banana: Mesmerizing Timelapse

This video of ants eating a banana slice has taken the internet by storm.

Spoiler Alert:

The banana does not win.


Ants are pretty badass, and different species of ants are known for different forms of badassery. For example, when caught in a flood, red fire ants will link their heads and bodies together to form a raft. Meanwhile, male driver ants are willing to die for the chance to have sex with the queen driver ant.

But the majority of ant species are better known for another even more shocking ability: the power to devour animals much bigger than themselves. The banana video gives you an idea of this power, but if you want an even more badass example, click here to watch ants devour an entire gecko.
