cool structure. poor ants... they should have shown the next part. they put an ant upside down on a petre dish and he holds up a 5 gram weight with his teeth. it's amazing.

NOOO! They killed the ants! Yeah, it's a mega amazing structure, but they killed the ants! (And if they didn't, why didn't they say so?)

For all you fing morons complaining about killing the ants, you damn well better have never eaten a hamburger, a piece of chicken or anything else that was once alive. You also have better not ever dropped a bug bomb or roach bait to get rid of some insects or swatted a fly. Oh wait, you did all those things? Then STFU. There is nothing wrong with killing those ants. Ants do not have feelings, they are not precious little snowflakes you need to protect. In many places they are fried and eaten, so STFU about the mean old scientist who killed an ant colony. Nobody cares for good reason you whiny tards.

ok i am really impressed at that aswell but we are trying to personify the ants. They dont have board meetings and argue about where to build the next tunnel the simply have an inbuilt instinct to build each chamber depending on the flow of gasses in the hive. I'm not saying that it isn't impressive but you might aswell cream yourselves over a fish swimming or a bird building a nest... ZOMG how did it know where to put the twigs and then to work out how to lay an egg its amazing!!!!

y is everyone wingin about the ded ants?
they have no cognitive reasoning or thoughts, it aint like someone destroying a human city because we can love, reason and fell pain, loss and injustice.

those little ant dudes had no opinion of dying other than "im an ant"!

they might not of killed them, they could of smoked it out first or something. Plus, it's amazing. Read The first Men in the Moon. It reminded me of that.

Impressive! I feel bad for the ants though, all of that work shot to hell so we can study them.

For those who oppose them being killed:

1. Wake up and smell the fricking roses. Science kills. It's not pretty, but it gets stuff done.

2. There are tens or even hundreds of thousands more nests like that one. The buggers are everywhere. Removing one does almost nothing.

ants take years building a huge city that theyre so proud of, leading happy little ant lives making happy little ant children and then we come along and slaughter them all and say "oooo look at the cute little tunnles awww" humans are great

Im with the ants they carried dirt 4 times their body weight for what in their terms would be half a mile and they wouldn't have done it just once. They build a massive city so their children and their childrens children will have somewhere nice to live and what.. some scientist hell bent on gettin some recognition because he lacks self confidence tips concrete in their creation killing millions of lives for a 6 minute clip! Humans should respect the sanctity of life!

Wow. Firstly, that video is amazing. Secondly, I can't believe the amount of people who are sympathizing with ants. I'm sure you've never slapped off an ant when you saw one on you, or stepped on one accidentally, but how could you do that, you miserable person? At least the scientists were doing this for research. Living things kill each other, that's just a way of life. Get used to it, you guys are pathetic.

It's a pity they killed off all the ants

but there are still like a million ants per human on the planet.. so let's just admire the beauty of that poo

there's always the possibility that he ants were evacuated... no?

"So they destroyed one of the greatest cities in the world. That's cool. How would you feel if someone killed everyone in your city just because they felt like it?"

I'm sure there is hundreds like it, maybe even bigger.. If you go outside, you'll see ants quite a bit.

Mr Stache, on that same subject as doing something "as one", have you ever been covered with ants? Well, I have, and they seem to all bite at the same time :o! That causes much more pain. Maybe ants have some kind of mass-communication things?

There are times when science goes a little too far. This is one of those moments.

Wow. Just wow. That's so amazing that it's that well coordinated. I wonder how the ants manage to build it that well without planning? Or do they somehow plan it as one?
