What Happens When You Pour Molten Aluminum Into A Fire Ant Colony

Have you ever wondered what a fire ant colony looks like underground? Here’s a hint, it’s extremely intricate.

This is actually the second Anthill Art video showing the casting of a fire ant colony with molten aluminum.

According to Anthill Art, “These are the red imported fire ants (RIFA) which are harmful to the environment and their nests are exterminated by the millions in the United States using poisons, gasoline and fire, and boiling water.”

The final cast turned out to be 17″ deep and 19″ at its widest.
