Ants some of the most impressive creatures on this planet. There so many things we do not about them. Scientists have just an amazing new fact about these tiny insects. It is about the way ants – the way they get from A to B without getting lost. An international group of scientists say ants can in a straight line along a compass route, whatever direction they are . The BBC said it is the same as, "trying to find your way home while walking backwards or even spinning round and round". Scientists say ants this by using the position of the Sun, their past memories, and what they can around them. Professor Barbara Webb said ants around like a self-driving car.

The scientists desert ants near Seville, Spain. They their report in the journal 'Current Biology'. They said: "Ants can navigate over long distances between their nest and food sites using visual [clues]." They this even when the scientists put obstacles in their way and when they to drag food while walking backwards. Professor Webb said: "Ants a…tiny brain, less than the size of a pinhead. Yet they can navigate successfully under many difficult conditions, including going backwards." She we can many things from ants: "Understanding their behaviour us new insights into brain function and has us to build robot systems that their functions."
