This one is close to where I go to flirt with a girl, and eat this deep fried get fat food. I will try to get close, and see if I can find any of the termites. 6 centimeters is huge, so would be a good video, but finding the queen is not going to be easy, I am guessing.

An interesting thing about termite mounds: a primary function of the mound is to house a mushroom farm. Yes, a mushroom farm. Termites have domesticated a type of mushroom, which they raise in chambers within the mound.

I went and looked at one close the other day. It may have been dead, I saw zero insects. I can now see why the locals do not knock them down, it was like hard brick, very hard.
