Friday Pic: African ecosystem

Keeping the African ecosystem is one of the key factors for the natural resources of a continent that engages every traveler who discovers its charms. So, today's Friday Pic is dedicated to a small insect that has became fundamental to Africa.

What would you say if I tell you that termites create flora and fauna around their nests? Totally true.

It appears that by building these huge mounds of almost three meters high, water is channeled and increases the nutrients in all the land in the area

It becomes fertile so abundant vegetation grows. This causes the animals to breed and feed near the nests of termites. Amazing, isn't it? These insects create a cycle of life!

It seems obvious now that little things move the world!

Happy Friday!
