Was happy to see this pop up in my subscriptions. This guy has some pretty sweet footage, and the explanations aren't half bad.

Those are amazing termites. Like fungus growing ants, but termites instead. Probably easier to keep, unless the guy is just good at keeping them. Then again, keeping Leafcutters are probably pretty easy if you live in say South America :P


They look really cool though. Thanks for sharing the video :)

Their ability to just make a new queen when needed has got to be pretty awesome in terms of survivability. 


I would absolutely give these style termites a try. Hrmmmm where to get some....


Wife isn't going to like the termite idea... lol 


and @Vendayn greetings to another Irvine ant enthusiast :)
