Cool ant colony

I don't care about ants so I find this fascinating.

World's biggest ant hill. [VIDEO]

I fell into a 2 foot tall red ant hill when I was 4 and only 2 foot tall, myself. Dad had to pour gasoline on me to get the ants off. I'm not crazy about ants.

WOW. Thanks RF, that was both fascinating and creepy. I would have liked to know how old they think it is.

They poured cement into that ant "metropolis"! They killed an ant colony that big. I'm shocked and stunned.
