Life in the Undergrowth: Ant life in the Australian mangroves

David Attenborough narrates ant life in the Australian mangroves — “various kinds of trees up to medium height and shrubs that grow in saline coastal sediment habitats in the tropics and subtropics.” Such excellent footage, it’s yet another fascinating nature clip from the BBC‘s Life in the Undergrowth. The kid should see this!
