Misread that one as "The ants [are] a big part of my rødgrød with cream."

Duolingo has taught me to expect the weirdest things :D

Why is it "del" and not "stykke" for the part?

"et stykke" is "a piece" and with physical objects, it seems to imply that something is rather solid, like bread or pie. Rødgrød med fløde.....well, there's a reason it's eaten with a spoon :D

det er stadig sådan at dyr æder og mennesker spiser, så " myrerne æder en stor del af min rødgrød med fløde" er rigtigt.

Æde er gammelt dansk for det tyske spise. Mennesker æder lige så vel som dyr og dyr spiser lige så vel som mennesker.

Det kan måske glæde dig, at "æder" nu bliver godtaget.
