“You must consider a termitary as a single animal, whose organs have not yet been fused together as in a human being. Some of the termites form the mouth and digestive system; others take the place of weapons of defence like claws or horns; others form the generative organs…The insects themselves should always be thought of as the blood-stream and organs of a single animal”.

Eugène Marais, The Soul of the White Ant
