(Mother Nature Network)   Over the decades people have wondered if Native Americans, aliens, earthquakes or floods created the 8-foot tall, 30-foot wide Mima mounds that cover Washington's prairie land. Turns out, it was just gophers   (mnn.com) divider line 59

George Babbitt: p0nk: George Babbitt: RightWingWacko: p0nk: "What's really cool about this is scaled by body size, these are the largest structures built by any mammal not including humans,"

Other structures built by non-human mammals such as?

Ant Hills
Termite hills

I am aware of numerous insect-made structures.  and before anybody posts pictures of bird nests, i am aware of bird-built structures as well.   Do not need to see examples of reptile, amphibian, or fish built structures either.

I think that most of the mammalian structures that are built are going to be subterranean based on the theories surrounding how mammals survived some of the extinction events in our planet's history. That leaves you with rather amazing structures such as the complex burrows of many rodents that you can't really appreciate visually as we do so many other above ground structures. But there is this guy that has been dumping molten aluminum down ant hills to get a inverse copy of the structure. Of course all the ants die and nobody cares about ants, so he continues his research. He'd probably have more blowback if he tried it on a prairie dog mound.
