Enter the fascinating world of weaver ants as you explore one of the most complex social systems of all forms of life. Weaving Ants was filmed on location in the Ivory Coast, using macrophotography and special effects lenses to capture what the human eye cannot see. Extraordinary closeups include the ants weaving leaves into nests, raising green flies and fleas for food, and capturing a grasshopper, as well as the birth of a queen ant and a devastating territorial war.
