ants carrying larvae

Camponotus xerxes


each ant is about 4 mm long. The ants were carrying their larvae and moving fast on the short wall that surround the garden in our house. I saw them when I displaced the grass near the wall.


inside the house or outside the house (everywhere).


watch the video to see how fast they move.... {{If anyone know why they were carry their larvae please tell ,, I think they were changing their nest!}}.
