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:

Weaverville.... for the name of the colony. We can't wait to watch subsequent episodes to see what name for your colony that you went with. I have a 7 year old son who loves your channel, ants are his favorite animal. He hopes to one day study them and get his own weaver ant colony. Thank you for your channel.🐜

These ants aren't just "Asian". They live in Africa, too. They make the same nests in cashew trees. A lot of African youngsters can share a tale or two about meeting these little monsters in fruit trees! Ha! I have a tale or two, as well..... Ouch!

Do the powers that be allow people to bring in ants not native to that area? Have you ever ran a tube outside giving the ants access to the whole of God's green earth? Very interesting experiment.

Mate, I used to live in SriLanka and all our mango trees had these nests. Also a sour orange tree. Do you think the acidity of the tree helps them with their formic acid production?
