Casting a Fire Ant Colony

Amazing Youtube video of a guy making a cast of an ant colony with molten aluminum. The soil seems disturbed and loose, but lots of soil is like that, and this looks pretty legitimate to me. Besides which it seems like the best way to make that cast. So, very cool. And important for archaeologists to see how much disturbance ants cause 18 inches (45 cm) under ground. (And another one here.)
