Weaver ant leaf nests are truly mind-blowing! My new colony of Asian Weaver Ants (Oecophylla smaragdina) have been transplanted into their newly designed, climate-controlled tropical terrarium, known as Vortexia. They were previously under threat by an intruding colony of Pharaoh ants, but that isn't the only complication. We discover a dead queen in the collection! Join us as the ants construct their incredible, signature leaf nests and witness one of Mother Nature's most incredible insects solve all challenges!
Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.
