“If we were to weigh all the ants in the world, they would weigh as much as all of the people,” said wildlife presenter Chris Packham… But is this statement true?

The BBC Four documentary claims they number not 10,000 trillion but 100 trillion, though it still suggests the total weight of ants equals the total weight of humans…

“It’s very easy to weigh an ant. You buy a small electronic balance, and you place the ant on the balance,” says Ratnieks. But he advises you refrigerate it first. “That way it doesn’t run away.”

“We must also remember that humans [like Donald Trump] are getting fatter all the time. We’re not just increasing in population, we’re increasing in fatness, so I think we’ve left the ants behind.”

  1. Ants and peonies have coevolved in a commensal relationship. These special tiny ants get their nutrition by nibbling away the outer covering of the peony bud, thus releasing the flower and allowing her to open. If not for the ants, the peony would remain a hard green ball! Yay, ants!
