Day 6. Antlife

Last fall (I think it was) we discovered there was a huge hole in one of the large anthills we pass on our dogwalk. The hill was almost destroyed, one side had completely caved in - we stood there appalled, all that work... We couldn't understand who the vandal could be. Human or animal? Which animals eat ants? This was the doing of something larger than a bird. We never got any answers, and the hill seemed almost abandoned. But today we saw intense activity, they were working like crazy, I've never seen such an amount of ants! They have already managed to cover up the cave-in. So we can relax now :)
