Ant Hill ?

Posted by
Devi (Chennai, India) on 18 October 2019 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

I thought it was an ant hill under the hibiscus plant. My hubby warned me saying, there may be a snake inside.
I wouldn't know. It was drizzling and I could fine no ants around anywhere !
I wish it was a snake and it peeped out :)))
Whatever, it is a marvelous piece of civil engineering !!

mohammad from Isfahan, Iran

As I read later, I find it a bit strange,
If the plant had dried, I would have thought otherwise,
But the two species of plant and animal life together are quite peaceful,
Thanks dear Devi for this intelligently record and Bravo on yours my friend.

@mohammad: are right ..a friendly plnt to allow the creature to build its nest here !

Harry from Apex, NC, United States

ha ha - civil engineering, good joke but apt. I agree with your hubby that something bigger than ants is behind this, and I don't know the fauna of your environment, but I have seen a variety of "dens" that have been "engineered" by mice, moles, spiders, toads, large beetles, and probably more. Consider it an opportunity to enhance your wildlife skills, and try to catch a shot of whatever lives there.

19 Oct 2019 2:45am

@Harry: Probably on my next visit to our son's place I will discover what it was ! The gardener may enlighten me :)))

Sam from Chennai, India

Amazing details and textures in this anthill/hole. It looks like a elivaLai. You can expect a snake from a hole like this. :)

19 Oct 2019 3:56pm

@Sam: Wow !! ElivaLai !! And a snake !! May be on our next visit to son'e home we may encounter the owner !!!
