Would you have ever of thought that an underground tunnelling system made by Ants could be considered art? And, turn out stunning? This creative individual who I am talking about had a serious Imported Fire Ant problem on his property and for some reason, decided to pour Molten Aluminium into the nest of a Red Fire Ant colony and upload it to the internet.
