Super Ants

Victoria University scien-tists have made a major breakthrough in the world
of biological science.

They discovered that when wasps and ants compete for food, the wasps pick up the ants, give them the ride of their lives and dump them somewhere far away from the dinner table.
The research took place in the South Island’s beech forests. Videotapes taken at bait stations show the thrill-seeking ants competing with wasps for the food.

“Eventually the wasps get so angry they pick up the ant, take it away and return to eat the food” the leading researcher said.
The experience is apparently the human equivalent of being thrown up to half the length of a football field.

The findings have recently been published in the Royal Society journal Biology Letters, one of the world’s leading publications in the field of biological sciences.
