In the natural reserves and forest of Matanzas province you be able to observe termite nest as shown as the above picture. Termites are often compared to ants and known as white ants but have nothing to do with ants. Termites feed themselves mostly on dead plants as dry wood. Termites are mostly found in tropical and subtropical regions as in Cuba. Termites are insects living in colonies. The termites are white and can’t move as quick as ants, they have shorter legs, are softer and fatter than real ants. On the picture you can observe some of the termites going out of their nest probably to look for food. Each termite from the colony has a work to do. Some are known as termite workers and others as soldiers. Australia is a place where you can find spectacular nest of termites in some regions mainly in the Northern Territory.
