Check this out

Highways, ventilation systems, rubbish pits and gardens are all parts of a typical community, yet this megacity is far from human. This natural wonder was constructed by an ant collective, and the scientists who excavated it poured ten tons of cement into the structure to discover the mysteries it held.

What an idea, and what a surprising result! I figured there would be tunnels and open areas, but the complexity and function here are really marvelous. Someone should consider including this type of idea in some experimental architecture or city planning. How old is was that anthill?
Nice find


Peace,

I hate bugs but scientists doing this killed billions of ants and destroyed a wonder that most likely took years to build, in order to satisfy their curiosity.

Doesn't seem right. IMO

Very amazing...speechless

I agree about the killing of the ant's however. That part is just showing the human cruelty that happens for the advancement of science.

Great find, thank you.

Now only if we could get a human collective in this day and age to do something just as positive, we might be able to save ourselves.

Ants can do this but we can't ? And we say we're evolved.

i would hope that they would have chosen the area because a colony was in decline or had died out to a point where the impact to area would be negligible.

i hear where you're coming from. it would be a shame if a live, flourishing colony was destroyed in the name of science. especially seeing as how nature as a way of balancing itself out and that colony was an active and integral part of the local ecosystem. (decomposing organic material, helping to spread seed, and harmful bug killin')

The queen had already died so the anthill was empty the workers moved on so no ants were harmed
