Hosur Road



Discovered! A new urban animal species.
And i'm not joking. A new species of ants was actually discovered within Bangalore city limits in 2006 at IISc. The ant species is named after the city and is called Dilobocondyla bangalorica.
And if you are crazy about ants, and if you live in Bangalore or anywhere on the Deccan peninsula, this colourful, informative and easy-to-use book should be your bible - On A Trail With Ants: A Handbook of the Ants of Peninsular India by Ajay Narendra & Kumar SM.
