I came across some really sweet-looking homes of some rather not-so-sweet creatures a few days ago. Sanket clicked these pics, which came out really well. Thought I’d share it with everyone.
This is a picture of the dwelling of the ‘Large Red Ant’. It is similar in structure to the nests built by the Weaverbird(‘Baya’) or by the Tailorbird. This can be found hanging from a branch of a Mango tree in front of the Keane School.
And this fort-like structure is called an ‘ant-hill’ , and it belongs to ‘White Ants’ or ‘Termites’ (or ‘Deemak’ if you please). An imposing structure about chest high, it is standing in the woods in front of the Keane School. Impressive, huh?
I found both these ‘houses’ in IIIT itself along the main road. Hmm, Life can be pretty interesting if you just keep your eyes and ears open.
