Roberto Ivens Quote
The termites, ever hard at work, were reconstructing their habitations. Strange Arachnidios, such as the silkweaving spider, ma-vuvi (Nephita bragantina) were swinging from spray to spray, fastening them together with their delicate yellow webs. The active and obscure Xylophages were mining to the very heart the knotted trunks of ancient trees.
