Close up photography of, well, Small Things.
And in three of those photos you can see signs of the super-macho Scottish termites. Not content with mere wood, and having evolved in close proximity to large quantities of scotch, they instead bore holes clear through rocks.While impressive, this also means that the termites tend to starve to death in a few days (what with stone being indigestible and all). This is why the Scottish termite hasn't taken over the rest of the world. Yet.
