These large mud nests were all over the place on St. John. I thought this one was interesting built in a tangle of mangroves. I was surprised to learn it was built by termites. It would be quite a bit of work for a human to shovel all that dirt and the thought of tiny insects building that enormous ball of mud was amazing. Then I thought of the extensive boardwalks where we stayed. I wondered if they ate pressure treated wood?
