Australian hole in the ground - nest?


Recommended Posts

Fascinating - the things I learn on the Alamy forum.  I'd never heard of these before - it is a Mulga Ant's nest.  They build a levee around the entrance of the nest to prevent flooding and the twigs are to prevent erosion.  Clever little critters!

The size of those holes makes them not so little critters.
