If you thought your shelters were good...

Shelters come in all shapes and sizes, but it's not often that you get to see one designed by ants. Granted the narrator is no David Attenborough, but try NOT to be amazed when you see the results of excavating the 10 tons of concrete scientists poured into a leafcutter ant colony. For those impatient types, it starts getting good after 4:00.

The ant colony covers an area of 538 square feet, much bigger than any tent we produce. (via www.kottke.org)
