Giant Anthill Casting Shows Amazing Structure Underground

Ants: Nature's Secret Power is a documentary of an abundant, yet often overlooked form of life that flourishes under our feet. Scientists fill an anthill with a whopping ten tons of concrete and wait for a month to let it harden. They then excavate it to reveal an amazing underground structure that covers 50 square meters or 536 square feet, and reaches 8 meters (26 feet) below the surface of the earth. It features multiple rooms, subterranean highways, and many side roads interconnecting a host of fungus gardens, trash pits and everything else together.  Here is a clip showing the astounding creation, and below that you will find the full documentary for those who want to know more.
