This lion has powerful paws! On each paw, there sits a pig. On each of the pig's hooves is an 8-legged spider, and on each of the spider's legs is a 6-legged ant. How many total legs are there?

Help. I keep getting 340 and want to make sure I'm right.

@summer10,
Lion - 4 paws
Pig - 4 hooves
Spider - 8 legs
Ant - 6 legs

4x4x8x6 = 768 legs

How did you get 340?

@Francis,
Ah yes, you have to add them all back in. You are correct as usual!
