The place where ants live: Madidi

We learned that Madidi has an incredible diversity of ants and very many of each. We certainly saw many different kinds.

But the kind that goes and harvests leaves from trees and bring it back to massive ant hills, no... colonies with its subterranean city state, are a sight to behold. So this video is worth a look to see the path-creating action of hundreds of thousands of little tiny ant feet.

Also, look out for the lazy ones that catch a ride on a leaf ... carried by another busy ant ... too funny.
