Anthills, as we call them...

...or more correctly, termite mounds. Made from mostly termite saliva, plant matter and soil, these guys (the mounds, that is) are hard enough for a grown man to jump on with no ill effect. Around here they don't grow that high, but further north you find some seriously big ones.

Interesting fact #213: In some African countries they eat this as a supplement as it is rich in minerals ...
... not in my house though...
