The final instalment of Ant Attack sees the colony take on a 100,000,000 year old enemy – the winged termite. They infiltrate their foraging tunnels in search of food – and find a hostile party lying in wait.
Planet Earth II
Natural World: Ant Attack
In a quiet patch of forest, life is about to be turned upside down for its animal residents – the ants are coming. Spiders, scorpions and even forest crabs don’t stand a chance. As food runs out, the ants, driven on by the ever-hungry grubs in the nest, have no choice but to attack the not so easily defeated termites. Armed with chemical weapons and fearsome jaws that could crush an ant to pulp, they’re the ants’ toughest adversaries. From the raw terror of battle to the inner-workings of an ant colony, this is television as you’ve never seen it before.
