Geekery: This Isn’t Your Grandpa’s Ant Farm

The humble ant is one of nature’s greatest engineers – watch this giant colony create a new home.

AntsCanada really loves their ants.

What happens when you introduce a massive, ravenous fire ant colony to a bin full of soil? Pure awesomeness! In this video, we watch as our favourite Fire Ant colony “The Fire Nation” moves into a bin full of soil called “The Fire Palace”. We observe the amazing tunnel work and constructions they make and witness what makes ants the best architects and designs Mother Nature has to offer.
