Scientists pumped concrete inside an abandoned ant colony and found a strange megacity inside the Earth

After years of intensive study, an engineer can go out into the field and work on structures that stand tall and dominate civilizations, inhabiting millions. Although humans would love to feed their inflated egos and declare themselves the only creatures on Earth that could possibly build such megacities, we are not the only ones with such talent in our arsenal.

After pumping 10 tons of cement, scientists find a mega city inside Ant Hill

Scientists carried out experiments and investigations in the field to discover a megacity below the surface of the Earth. They found a secret city hidden in the ground that was built by tiny ants. Researchers discovered the megacity by pumping 10 tons of cement into an abandoned anthill for three consecutive days.

After weeks of careful excavation, the group of scientists unearthed a huge ant colony built underground. The entire unboxing was captured in the documentary ‘Ants! The secret power of nature’. It is extremely fascinating to witness the structure develop as scientists excavate the soil deposited around it.

The minds of the spectators were completely blown when they noticed the intricacies of the underground network that the ants had created. From the structure of the tunnels in the huge megacity, the scientists determined that the ants had moved 40 tons of earth to make the underground structure.

The structure established by the ants was not only enormous in size, but also logically planned.

In the clip that went viral on Twitter, the narrator explained: “There are underground roads connecting the main chambers and off the main routes there are secondary roads.” The narrator added: “The paths branch off and lead to many mushroom gardens and garbage dumps.”

Over the course of 3 days, the scientists pumped 10 tons of cement into an abandoned anthill. After weeks of excavation, the intricate and impressive structure of the colony is revealed. This [full video, from “Ants! Natures Secret Power”:]

The video also clarifies how these tunnels within the structure are designed to ensure complete ventilation and cut the transport time for ants in half. “Everything seems to have been designed by an architect with a single mind, but of course that’s not true,” the narrator said.

The narrator continued: “This colossal and complex city was created by the collective will of the ant colony, the superorganism.” Ants can carry 10 to 50 times their own weight and are small but very strong creatures, according to Arizona State University.

However, his strength is not his only virtue; According to the Journal of Biomechanics, a group of researchers discovered that the neck joint of a typical American field ant can withstand pressures of up to 5,000 times its own weight.

Carlos Castro, an assistant professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at The Ohio State University, said: “Ants are impressive mechanical systems, truly amazing. Before we started, we made a somewhat conservative estimate that they could support 1,000 times their weight, and turned out to be so much more.”
