Giant Ant Colony is a World Wonder

Watch an amazing video in which scientist uncover a giant ant colony that covers 50 square metres and goes eight metres down into the earth. The ants removed 40 tonnes of material to build this enormous colony.
Pin It now!

I know they're ants, but to me it seems very unscientific to kill an entire megalopolis just to see its structure. A wonder of the world? Cynical.

I think they could have accomplished the same thing with ultrasound and other techniques.

Yeah, poor ants, their civilization now ruined. I prefer the undestructible micro-robot-ant soldiers with cameras, gps and wifi to map the city. or something like that, with a good fluorescent visible text: "I came with peace" on both sides.

I was wondering about that too. It seems so unethical. Who knows how much bigger that structure could have been.
