I was poking around the ants’ nest to see what would happen. black ant going inside nest

And when I dug further and further, I came to the chamber where the ants stored their eggs. And to my surprise the ants started to carry their eggs to a safer place either walking on four legs and carrying their egg on their shoulders OR dragging the egg with their jaws.

Some of the eggs got abandonned however as the ants got confused or ran away.ant carrying egg
