Just wondering... does anyone know what kind of tree the ants built their anthill in? 8)

Taking a course in Plant and Soil Science in my senior year should help me with this! But the most we did with trees is graft an apple tree. I wish I knew, because I love plants! I'm going to take a few college courses in Plant Sciences, and if I learn the answer I'll be sure to tell you!

All I know is that it's one of the coolest trees ever!

The same tree is also seen during the "When Somebody Loved Me" sequence in Toy Story 2.
