Watch Green Tree Ants, Cape Tribulation, Queensland, Australia

Green tree ants (Oecophylla 
smaragdina) are found through out the tropical rainforest of northern Queensland, Australia. They are occasionally referred to as weaver ants as they form large leafy nests fastened together by strands of silk secreted by their own larvae.
 These large ants range in size from 4-10 mm in length. These green ants were about 7mm - over a quarter of an inch long.
This HD video and audio were recorded in Cape Tribulation in Tropical North Queensland, Australia on the railing of our bungalow in the rainforest. Listen for the sounds of the rainforest.
