(STUDY FINDS) — Ever wondered how many ants are crawling around on Earth? Scientists have tackled the seemingly impossible question and reveal a mind-boggling conclusion: There are 20,000,000,000,000,000 ants on the planet.
More simply put — that’s 20 quadrillion, or 20 followed by 15 zeroes.
The question has been addressed by a team from the Insect Biodiversity and Biogeography Laboratory of the School of Biological Sciences (SBS) at The University of Hong Kong (HKU). In their work, they also calculated the total biomass of all these ants, putting in perspective their prominence on our planet.
