In an equally hilarious and terrifying clip, one such insect is seen crawling around on a table.
When the camera zooms in on the ant it becomes clear it’s casually holding one of its pals in front of him.
The moment then turns into a scene out of The Lion King as it approaches the edge of the surface and lifts it in the air.
But the ant has a far more sinister plan.
Without a moment’s hesitation, it lets go of its former friend – sending it plummeting to its death.
It then simply turns around and scurries off without a care in the world.
The word savage doesn’t even come close.
More than 75,000 people have retweeted the bizarre video since it was posted to Twitter on Wednesday (June 13) with the caption: “If this isn’t the funniest ant sacrifice you’ve ever seen you’re lying.”

One viewer commented: “Why would it do that… It wasn’t just by chance, that madman had it all planned.”
Another added: “Good god that’s barbaric.”
And a third – referencing an iconic scene from film 300 – wrote: “THIS IS SPARTAAA”.
