Ants are very hard working insects .

Ants are very hard working insects. They work for 9 hours a day and get very little sleep. Now, I am going to tell you how.

Ants work for their food

Ants work for their food. They start by carrying leaves to the ant hill. Then they turn the leaves into fungus and the fungus is their food for the whole colony. Sometimes they travel far distances to collect their food.

Ants Sleep for a very short time

Ants take 250 naps a day. Wow that's a lot of naps for an ant. They only last one minute long and they get less than five hours of sleep.


Ants work very hard for everything they get.
