    AntsCanada: “Can you imagine living in a palace made from your own feces and barf?!” XD
    Me:Just no .-.
    Seriously though, termites are definitely fascinating and their uniqueness can be more appreciated when you have raised many species of ants.
    But pls though, don’t make a palace of feces and barf 🤢
