Home to over 30 trillion ants, the Death Valley Anthill is the only anthill visible from space. Reaching 2 miles deep and spanning 14 square miles, the tunnels support an estimated 70,000 queen ants and contain enough harvested protein to feed all of America for five years, assuming Americans ate aphid feces.
Because the ants live underground, the visible portion seen above is in fact the parking for the ant hill. Costing up to 5$ for a half hour ticket, the great anthill’s parking has been criticized by many of the local libertariant newspapers as fascist in nature. The massive population is also at odds with the small single entrance and exit to the entire underground realm. Only one centimeter across, the ants are forced to march one by one through the opening, even in emergencies such as the rare but destructive desert rain.
And before you write in to tell me this is a photo of Burning Man, allow me to explain- It is. Burning Man is held on a GIANT FUCKING ANTHILL.
