High-speed footage of leaf-cutter ants (Atta sp.) at the entrance to their nest. The ants excavate underground chambers that they fill with sections that they cut out of leaves. The leaves provide a substrate for the growth of a specific fungus, on which the ants feed. Filmed in Rio Bigal, Ecuador.
