Peeking Inside an Ant Nest

This is a BBC documentary made in 2013 on leaf cutter ant.  The researchers built an artificial ant nest at Glasgow Science Center in UK. They move the leaf cutter ant colony they captured from Trinidad into the new nest. The glass chambers allow the scientists to see inside the colony and observe the ant behavior and how the colony function as a whole.
