Termite nest, Australia
Termite nests are the largest and most complicated built structures in nature - some can reach 105 times the size if the individuals that build them.  This ratio is only exceeded by the largest human cities like London and Los Angeles. The termites that build them do so by smell and touch (they are blind).

    Classic Australia. Today active termites were found in my bedroom :( Not the best day I’ve ever had.
