Skin-crawling footage captures an army of ants dragging a huge millipede across the floor.

While Thiromana Yin was at the Terres Rouges Lodge in Cambodia, he was treated to a clear sight of the super-strength of ants.

Looking down at the floor, a formation of the incredible insects is placed around all sides of an unfortunate millipede.

With an arrow shape at the front pulling the much bigger creature along, well placed ants on either side of its body help the flow of the movement.

Thiromana said: “It was amazing to see the brute power of these ants.

“They worked together to move their prey to their home.”
