Termite mounds structures numerous galleries control temperature
Termites in grassland of Asia and vast savannah of Africa are famous for constructing incredible towering earthen structures. Their skyscrapers are so designed that engineers have adopted them to design and build modern environmentally-sound buildings.
Through teamwork, termites build huge porous structures having numerous galleries to control the temperature inside the mound. The way they build a mound with a network of tunnels is an amazing display of organised effort on part of these master builders of the animal world.
They use the mound for activities while living in the nest below the mound. There are generally food chambers to store food in the mound. It is quite astonishing that these little creatures have the ability to construct such high structures that meet their needs in the first place.
