A particularly close-up and violent ant versus termite video.

That was stressful! The end of the movie arrived and I still hadn't figured out who were the good guys or even who had won the battle.

I'm guessing there must be at least ten ants to every termite, probably more.

Is that huge mass at the end a termite queen?

This clip reminds me of the movie 300. The outnumbered termites are defending their homeland from the ant invaders...

Thanks for sharing, interesting to watch.

Reminds me of a clip from Life in the Undergrowth which shows termites vs. matabele ants. The ants grab the termite soldiers by the mandible and sting them right in the vulnerable spot between their jaws. Which must *really* hurt.

That poor spider got caught right in the middle of everything!
