        What's Inside the Termite Nest

        You might think that's just a pile of dirt sticking up on the Serengeti plain in Africa. It is dirt. Dirt and termite fecal matter. (More from DIORAMA). Delve inside the scene of a termite mound with SciTech Now and DIORAMA at The American Museum of Natural History. It's a universe all its own, made up of millions of living, breathing, eating, reproducing, building, defending termites. See the world's largest termite queen (over 10 cm long!), the winged kings, the mandibled soldiers and the blue collar workers. This is also an exploration of the Museum's termite collection, the world's largest.
