Hello Anthill Lovers;

 

This video shows a large leafcutter ant colony, filled with concrete and then excavated.  I only hope the colony had to be destroyed anyway.

 

You can find the video here   

 

I was surprised at the size of the nest, but not surprised to see it is a series of chambers connected by tunnels.  

RPT
