    Sorry for the late video, AC Family! This one took a lot longer to make than I expected, but it is now one of my favourite videos! Hope you guys like it, too! Also this video was just uploaded so sorry if the video appears low quality for the first little bit. This will change as RU-clip processes the video. Ant love forever and thanks for your patience, AC Family! Do you guys like this NEW Titans colony?

    I even shed some tears, thats how beautiful this is. And I only have 1 question....JAGLAVAK! The ant I’ll never forget. Termite killer. I watched a documentary how people call for them, to save them from termites. Are you planing to have some of those or do you maybe already have them. I am no pro here. Maybe they are impossible to care for...but thats the ant I fell in love with. called also the prince of insects

    As a kid, I would slightly disrupt a fire ant mound and then feed them live grass hoppers, insects and lizards. I would then watch the process of how they would kill and eat whatever I gave them. I also liked to make two "tiger" ants fight each other. Maybe this is a hobby that's been waiting for me since I was a kid.

    I had an idea for an ant colony based on the Lonely Mountain from the Hobbit. A sloping mountain of dirt like this video, but the surface is covered in a hard "shell" of plaster or something, mixed with granite dust. The surface would be mostly solid barren rock, with a small stream down the mountainside. Within the dirt [preferably against the glass] would be pre-constructed hollow "chambers" into the mountain, resembling stone-carved halls, throne rooms, mines, grottos, even a couple of those geodes that are cut in half, with ant-size holes drilled into them. One large hall would lead to the gates to the surface, by which the ants would have to enter, and by which they would have to bring food. And mixed into the dirt would be deposits and veins of crushed pyrite, gold foil, and other crushed gems, crystals, and buried treasure.
    The ants would obviously have to dig tunnels to connect all these places, and dig their own chambers.

    I've always wanted to have an ant colony, just wasn't sure where to begin or even if my "dream home" is realistic or humane. I want to be able to see the ants work their ways through tubes and tunnels and see the colony in the ground working in their caves and homes. I realistically just want to experience the life of an ant and learn from them first hand.
    P.S. Love the video! Liked + Subbed.
