Ants began farming millions of year before humans did

Scientists have found out that ants began farming millions of years before humans did.

A team from America have looked at how ants have evolved and found that the insects had complex underground farms, growing different types of fungi. Not only that, the ants had taken fungus from its natural environment to nests in much drier climates. The fungus couldn’t survive without the ants so it is a very early example of agriculture.
