I don't think it's possible that they destroyed the colony.
Either they moved it, or it was abandoned by ants themselves.

See how far you can get with a little cooperation..

We're 6billion souls on the world. Imagine we'd all have the capacity of cooperating like these tiny ants have.

Or imagine when 1 day ants grow out the size of dogs. Then we're screwed...

Ants all listen to one Queen Ant. That's Communism. We tried that and it didn't work.

Thats fucking amazing!

And Cargoon, That is not communism. Its called Hivemind. Communism is when some crazy greedy fucks convinces people that they are participating in a socialistic society but in reality they are getting ripped off and fucked over by capitalism.

Actually, they don't listen to the qeen ant, the so called qeen is an ant just like all the others, that is doing her part. She is actually the "ovaries" of the colony, not the designer, or brain of it. 8-)
Think of the ants like cells in a body, and the colony as the organism. And just like cells, ants don't need complex brains to figure out what they have to do, they evolved with the isntinct to do it.

#6 don’t thing so... I wrote something about that it looks like a castle, and that I was told to never destroy a ant-hill and that these gays were not told the same.
Why would that massage be erased?

Ooooops! My spelling was wrong. There's a little difference in the words "gays" and "guys".
So I rewrite my comment:
#6 don’t thing so... I wrote something about that it looks like a castle, and that I was told to never destroy a ant-hill and that these gUys were not told the same.
Why would that massage be erased? - Maybe because of the gay-word, I guess.

Discussing sexual preferences and religion will get your comment removed (and banned if you keep trying after your first comment is removed). Discuss the video and play nice people.

...Agreed with Patriotus...

...Scared of Aliquantulus..

#Zooidberg i was going to say exactly same thing. "I was told to never destroy a ant-hill and that these gUys were not told the same."

About video. at 2:52 Narrator said " -It IS truly a wonder of the world". I think he should have say " -It WAS truly wonder of the world". Because it destroyed by Dr.Luiz Carlos Forti and his team.. :(
