Ants Band Together To Create Raft and Protect the Queen

Floating Ants in water

Floating Ants in water

How will we survive when there is flood and we can not use anything else but each other?
Can we work together like ants?

According to a study published in the latest issue of PLOS ONE, ants created waterproof buoyant raft linking each other.
Baby ants were at the base of raft, worker ants formed link to finish rest of structure and queen ant was placed in the middle.
I understand queen being placed in the middle since it is safest spot on the raft but baby ants at the base does not make any sense.
Jessica Purcell from the University of Lausanne said, “We expected that individuals submerged on the base of the raft would face the highest cost, so we were astonished to see the ants systematically place the youngest colony members in that position. After further experiments revealed that the brood are the most buoyant members of the society and that rafting does not decrease their survival, this configuration benefits the group at minimal cost.”

Who knew that baby ants can float? This would definitely not happen in the human race

This explains why ants outsmart us and persevere like cockroaches.
