Leafcutting Ants

Pictures of Leaf cutting Ants in Panama

The Leafcutting Ant is incredible. They have one of the most complex social structures in the world. The leaves the Leafcutting Ant carries to its nest are 30 times their weight, a feat equivalent to a human carrying a bulldozer. They build mounds containing three hundred and fifty cubic meters of soil, right above an underground city of three thousand chambers and four million ants, the approximate population of Arizona.
