An intrepid YouTuber poured molten aluminum into an abandoned fire ant colony, and he got a strange result.

According to the uploader, the “resulting cast is huge, weighing 17.9 lbs. and reaching a depth of 18 inches.”


He spends a good deal of time digging the object up and scraping it off.

It doesn’t appear that any ants were incinerated during the process.
