I looked this up, kinda researched it after I watched several videos on underground antopolises, and it says this one was completely abandoned, so don`t worry. No ants were harmed.

As awesome as that is, what a bunch of non-nice individuals killing the whole colony to dig it up.

Insects are some of the most prolific creatures on earth. Ants are insects, one colony wont hinder the species growth in any way shape or form. The area they chose the hive from most likely had about 14 more scattered around it. Stop the whining about the dead ants.
It`s science.

You can even see an ant being cemented in the clip.

Oh, the colony was empty apparently. It was all abandoned.
So nevermind, let`s stop whinging about the ants and just admire the structure`s beauty.

I had a feeling they`d do something like that, but I thought they`d at least make the ants leave at first.

so they completely destroyed a colony of ants for no reason than to curb their curiosity?

Trivia: If you took all ants in the world, and placed them on one gigantic scale....

They would weigh more than all human beings on the face of the planet.

Damn nature, you complex as hell. I always knew that ants had massive underground tunnels, but seeing one is just...amazing. As for the ants that died...who cares. There are millions of colonies like this one ( if not more), and billions upon billions of ants in the world...

How would we like it if a bunch of ants came and dumped [whatever that was] in a mall and then removed the walls/building, then stood around and said, "Cool. Look at all the hallways and rooms."?

I`m not really mad... I just thought it was a fitting parallel.

i just wanna know why everyone is saying why did they do that? killing all the ants and their "work of art"
well we kill ants in our back yard some people spray the big ant beds with a water hose to get it to flatten, people put ant poison out in their yard to keep them away
just because what they done is bigger doesnt make it any different what alot of people do

and if im wrong sorry but me and everyone else that i know that puts ant poison down and flattens ant beds arnt going to change what we do, we`re still going to get rid of the mother [email protected] so they dont get in our house and/or bite our kids when they are outside in the yard playing

and for the people who say aunt poison is different, its not, they carry it down in to the colony so they can all eat it and all or the majorit die

It`s kinda sad that they did this, but when you think about it there are probably many, many other colonies like this out there. If i`m right this is a certain species of ant, and if i`m not, you have the right to beat the crap out of me with a large noodle, but that means that all of their colonies are like this. Think about it, how long do you think before pouring poison on that ant colony in your backyard? I have to say though, there are probably better ways to do this, like maybe they could map it out with GPR (ground penetrating radar). Then they`d have a 3D computer model that they could travel through in a simulation.

Today we bury the million ants that are now entombed in the newest addition to the modern art museum.

We remember them. Each of them. We remember Phil, and Tom, and Allen, And Sven, the foreign exchange ant, and Philis, and Lucy, and Martin, and Anna, and the other Tom, and Bill, and Lucy, and Steven, and Ant (We never did get what his name meant) and Paul, and Carry, and Carrie, and Carl, and Ethan, and Norbert, and Jane, and John, and John`s several children, John Jr., John II. John III, Jane, John IV, John V, Jany, And Kip... Kip was a black sheep, sure, but he had goals... dreams... We also remember Bart, and Sarah, and Mr. Tibbits, and Old Man Jenkins, and that one Ant that took the lead role in the movie Antz... We were so proud of him, and JC, and Aaron, and...
