The higher than me ANT-NEST; Musamus in WASUR National Park Aug 16, 2007
A giant ants house locally called MUSAMUS, is easy to find along the way in Wasur National Park, Merauke, Papua. It was awesome for me to see these tiny creatures could build that high houses; made from soil that are built for years, mounted from the ground and could reach 4-5 meters high. and possible to be higher by years. I ever read in NG, it's like if humans build a building with some kilometers high.. :D *impossible, isn't it?*

anyway, I took a great infra-red picture from an Indonesian photographer here, put it beside my veeerrrrryyyy modest shot.. :p

nb. the National Park ticket is cheap, but the flight to go to Merauke from Jakarta is so damn expensive :((
