Leaf cutter ant facts:

They have powerful jaws that vibrate up to 1000 times per second.
They can lift over 20 times their body weight (that’s the same as one human lifting a TON).
They don’t eat the leaves. They compost them back at the nest to grow yummy fungus, which they eat.
Each colon y of 3 to 8 million leaf cutter ants will move about 20 tons of soil in its lifetime.
And you think YOU work hard, huh?!
