How much weight can an ant pick up?


Answer by  YellowCup (1650)

Ants can lift 20 times their body weight because unlike humans, their skeleton system is on the outside of their body.

An ant can generally lift fifty times their own weight. They can lift so much because of a concept known as scaling -- their small size gives them an advantage on how much (relative to their size) muscle force they can produce.
