SIEM REAP, Cambodia, July 6 (UPI) -- A researcher studying ants in Cambodia captured footage of the insects teaming up to carry a much-larger millipede over a branch.

Stephane De Greef posted a video to YouTube showing the teamwork displayed by some ants he was observing during a research trip to Cambodia.

The video shows a large number of ants working together to carry the body of a large millipede over a branch to bring it back to their colony.

The insects initially appear stuck at the branch, but they increase their numbers and are able to overcome the obstacle.
