Fire ants are notorious mother-flippers. When put in contact with human skin, they can cause the type of pain that’ll make even the toughest of nuts sob like a baby. But did you know that fire ants are also pretty nifty when it comes to crafting boats? Seriously…we’re not even joking.
As flood waters continue to cause havoc across South Carolina, media types have been heading to the area to find out what’s been happening. Photojournalist Chris Murray, who was shooting for WSAV in Dorchester County, managed to record this footage of thousands of fire ants coming together and floating on the water like a tiny raft (made of ants). It’s the type of footage that makes our mouths drop in astonishment.
