Why do ants don't die when they fell high?

What a nice question? Did not ever think about it. It maybe coz they are very light in weight.

Reasons might be..Less weight, so less gravitational force acting upon and bonelessness.

the reason for that is a exoskeleton.. same as if spiders fall from high they aren't going to die..

An ant doesn't weigh much, that is why there would be lesser impact on the ground once it falls from a high location. Also, an ant is classified as an insect, where these creatures are protected with what is so-called "exoskeletons" - a tough structure covering their body to protect them from the harmful elements of the environment.
