We have all heard the phrase 'United we stand and divided we fall' all through our lives.
And now some of the smallest creatures in the world have proven it to be completely true. Known to work together in a team like no other, the same has been shown in a viral video that has been shared by Swati Lakra, the Inspector General of Police (Women's Safety).
In the 14 second long viral video, several ants can be seen making a bridge to help each other cross over to the other side. Swati, who is an avid social media user with 48,000 followers on the micro-blogging platform posted the video on September 12.
Swati captioned the video, ""#TeamEffort United we stand!"
Since being posted, the video which has garnered almost 5K likes, saw a number of people commenting on the same. While some called it "exceptional", others wrote that it was "good team" message being conveyed.

In every team you will find this kind of mentality, they think, others got less job to do when compare to us but they forget to realise that it’s a team work.— SKJ (@Jakkula25) September 13, 2019
