A City of Twelve Million

SHARE
To construct their homes, leafcutter ants will shift 40 tons of soil. There are subterranean highways connecting main chambers with side roads, temperature-controlled nurseries and trash pits. This is one house for twelve million inhabitants — a city larger than London and New York. (Video limited to U.S. & Territories.)
