    Have you ever wondered what would happen if ants were as big as people. Filing the various ant colonies of ths channel, I often lose myself in their micro worlds and forget they're so small. I've had so much time to think about what the world would be like if ants were bigger. Today, I discuss this hypothetical circumstance and the possible outcomes may surprise you. Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

Physics dictates that, if ants were to balloon to the size of a human, they'd float away. This is due to the ants becoming less dense than air itself. This is assuming that the ants do not gain additional mass, instead, only expanding in size(the space between their atoms growing wider).

Would't they be crushed by gravity? There is also the problem with not enough oxygen in the air to support their bigger bodies. Suffice to say they wouldn't live very long.

Now I'm picturing a fantasy scenario were Dwarves and Giant Ants coexist together inside mountain fortresses, helping each other out with mineraling and other things. Then I imagine both Dwarves and Ants forming an army and attacking an enemy army. Just imagine! One side of humans or elves or orcs charging in with Cataphracts, Armored Knights, Warg Riders or other such cavalry, meanwhile on the other side of the battlefield, *Soldier Ants and armored Dwarf charriots are charging b-line straight to them!* Heck, maybe the Dwarves even made mythrill chainmail armor for the Soldier Ants, making them that much tougher to kill! I'm sorry, this is all crazy, but videos like yours really sprung my imagination on the subject.

Yea they would be stronger but! Ants are made to be small for a reason and they are not build to be big, but even if they would being big comes with a cost. if you would shrink down in size you would be weaker sure but not compared to humans as big as you. Ants can lift 6 times there body weight, while very strong humans can lift twice there body weight. Or though those humans can lift 400 pounds some times. Most ants can only lift 18 grams or a bit more. So ants picking up houses wont be anytime soon ever. But they also would not be able to make colonies that big, because they would wipe out all the food and starve, so thats also a reason why ants are small.

Lots of people mention the square/cube law. But lets assume that hypothetical giant ants would have evolved to be large rather than magically changed size: then they'd have suitably sturdier legs. Now another obstacle to how big they can be is their circulatory systems. I'd expect evolving lungs isn't the hard part since various fish have found different tricks to survive out of the water over time, but arthropods' open circulatory system wouldn't take advantage of lungs as it is, so we have to assume they'd have gained a stronger heart and complete blood circulation at some point. Then you end up with a large species with organs that can now support a fast metabolism, that has a complex social structure, are generally effective at securing food, and takes active care of their young up to maturity, which means selective pressure would favour more complex brains, so by the time the advantage given by intelligence is balanced by the energy cost of a large brain, who knows how smart they'd be? Humans from that world wouldn't be dealing with "ants but very big", they'd be dealing with "ants but they're people". Of course, given how people treat people some times, that's not necessarily reassuring.

My theory: the ants are already such intelligent creatures. By increasing their size we would also be increasing their brains. That would make them extremely advanced or sentient or smart. Mankind is stubborn and have tamed flooking sharks before. What’s stopping one crazy scientist to rally an army and make a real life action movie? What’s stopping evil organizations from turning them into soldiers of death!? What’s stopping anybody from straight up nuking them and killing more of us than them!? There are 10 trillion ants, so 7 billion humans, for every human... ROUGHLY 1,430 ANTS PER HUMAN!!!!!!!!!!! DAMN WE ARE DEAD. One way or the other. But when ants discover fire: 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥 when they find tools and use English: hello there may we eat your heads off and feed you to our children thank you very much ok you are dead now. Also we could turn them into exoskeletons... ok so say one ant species smells our chemicals and she’s like “oh some honey oh wait...” and the other species smells it and she’s like... “JUST F*CK OFF!” And kills us all... Edit: I failed...
