Watch some ants gather cracker crumbs

Time-lapse video shows ants hard at work

By  

I'm not sure why this video intrigues me so much, but it's fun to watch a bunch of ants tackle a pile of saltine cracker crumbs. It probably helps that the video is a time-lapse, making the ants work a lot faster than normal, and that the total video is under three minutes (it likely took a lot longer for the ants to do this).

Maybe it's because the ants have some purpose in their lives, rather than sitting around the anthill watching videos of people doing things (like watching YouTube videos).
