Remarkable Builders of the Animal World Gallery

The wonder of animals’ diligence, ingenuity and perseverance

Titans of the animal building world are termites. The tallest mound recorded was 12.8 metres high, in the Republic of Congo. In Brazil there is an area roughly the size of Britain with about 200 million mounds, roughly 3 metres tall and 10 metres wide, 20 metres apart.  The tensile strength of the golden orb weaver’s silk exceeds that of steel by a factor of six. The Darwin's bark spider from Madagascar has the toughest silk of all, more than 10 times stronger than Kevlar antiballistic material. The nests of Africa’s weaverbirds and South America’s oropendolas and caciques need the makers to use half-hitches, loops and spiral binding to weave together hundreds of strips of nesting material. Towns of Prairie dogs sometimes covering hundreds of acres underground have drainage systems that cater for flooding from heavy rain.
