A beautiful specimen of an Ant hill i came across in the Sri Aurobindo Ashram grounds
Source Wikipedia:- Termites are a group of eusocial insects that, until recently, were classified at the taxonomic rank of order Isoptera (see taxonomy below), but are now accepted as the epifamily Termitoidae, of the cockroach order Blattodea. While termites are commonly known, especially in Australia, as "white ants", they are only distantly related to the ants.Great spotting though Kumar
This mound is not from an ant, but a termite!!
Lovely spotting. It's amazing that such tiny animals can make such big structures.
