Sleeping ants.

Did you know that ants don’t really sleep.

Reasearch has shown that ants tend to follow a pattern of taking 8 minute naps roughly every 12 hours. They do this as an entire group.

Other research shows that some ants sleep up to 5 hours a day in short 1 minute power naps. While an ant queen can sleep 8 plus hours a day.

Now you know.
