Ants make a fresh nest underground marked by the pig snout like ant hill above.

Ants make a fresh nest underground marked by the pig snout like ant hill above.

The Indian Harvester ants build a mud fortress around the main entrance of their underground burrow that keeps it safe during the torrential monsoon rains. Built on a slope with a tilt, the mud structure has labyrinthine channels that drain the rainwater away from the main entrance of their underground home.
