What's Inside The Termite Nest

Delve inside the scene of a termite mound with DIORAMA at The American Museum of Natural History. It’s a universe all its own, made up of millions of living, breathing, eating, reproducing, building, defending termites. See the world’s largest termite queen (over 10 cm long!), the winged kings, the mandibled soldiers and the blue collar workers.


Features interviews with AMNH scientist and curator David Grimaldi as well as AMNH research scientist Kumar Krishna.
