I found a colony of Weaver Ants! Should we keep them again? Today, we take a look at some wild weaver ants I saw while away on a trip. I talk about weaver ant lifestyle, their amazing leaf nests, what they're like as as pets, and my plans on keeping them again in the new Ant Room. Hope you enjoy this wild escape into the world of one of the coolest ants on the planet!
Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

  • I know im pretty late on this video but i remembered that in my primary school we had a open field that was 400m long and 800m wide. And there were treed planted along the the fences and almost all of the trees had one of these nests. I dont know if they are still there or not but all i know is me and my friends were terrified to get the ball when it flew close to that trees
