Active Termites Mound

Termites always need a closed surface to their mound because it's their air condition. It can heat up and cool down the mound. The height and style of the mound is actually just a reaction to the temperature of the location of the mound. This is an active mound, and the dark spots on the surface are actually from water that has been brought up to the surface in order to cool the temperature down. We are speechless.
