I found this video very interesting and I think you will too. It seems to be a documentary from a few years back, but it's only 3 minutes long.
It's amazing that a tiny creature such as the ant, can create a city under a city in just several months.
Imagine you're a researcher, and one day you come upon a rather large anthill. Your first thought would probably be, "geez that's a huge ass hill," but not for Professor Louis Fortune. He and a team of researchers were curious to see how hard these little ants really worked. Well, lets just say, it took them 3 days and 10 tons of cement before they were able to stop filling these ant hills.
After the cement was left to dry for a month, the excavation process began; What they found was beyond comprehension.
There they found subterranean highways connected to main chambers, fungus gardens and living quarters. It was like a huge masterpiece, like an architect had gone in and done all the work. Not only that, these ants carried 40 tons of soil to the surface in order to make this huge city. It truly is a fascinating video. You'll enjoy it so much you'll wish there were more.
