Army of ants munch on jelly that dropped on the ground


Fascinating footage shows an army of ants munching on a piece of shiny jelly that dropped on the ground.

Dozens of black polyrhachis illaudata ants took turns devouring the clear dessert lying on the dirt in Nakhon Pathom province, Thailand on January 11.

Onlooker Sian Suchatee said she was eating some pudding in her backyard when she noticed the creatures being attracted to her leftover food.

She said: ‘After dropping the jelly at the back of my home, I noticed those beautiful ants eating it.’
