I've got a new pet colony of #WeaverAnts (Oecophylla smaragdina) and they are truly epic! I created a tropical jungle #AntFarm terrarium for them, in hopes they would move in and create their signature leaf nests in the folliage of the setup. The habitat was high-tech and climate controlled, with an automatic rain system. Come join us as we discover the amazing world of Asian weaver ants, in celebratation of #3MillionSubs. This is Part 1 of our Weaver Ant Trilogy! Enjoy!

Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

Special thanks to nature photographer and biologist Alex Wild for allowing his photos to be used in this video. Check out his amazing nature photography and order some prints:

Do you build your enclosures?

Ants Canada: “after 3 hours of building, this is what the nest looked like...”

Bravo the Allosaurus
The weaver ants use silk that their larva produces to glue leaves and make their nests

ya canada!

I know this new colony is exciting but all I can seen is a lot of areas that the feral ants can get too, maybe having poisonous ant food traps outside the terrarium will help kill the pharaoh ants? The feral ants are becoming such a problem on this channel, it’s so frustrating 😩

This kind of 🐜 is an exotic food in some part of kalinga province Philippines.
CONGRATULATIONS ON REACHING 3 MILLION! You are beyond deserving! I can’t wait to see your continuing follow ups on this species and learning about them, as I’ve never even heard of them! Much love, Shelbie =)❤️🐜💚

Can you test if yellow ants can go underwater just to get food, I've seen once before, and I want it to be added to the discoveries found in this channel
