The Honey Ants Dream. Audrey Martin, as we were harvesting the honey ants' nest, threw her burrowing stick at a lizard. The scene played out in a few seconds despite the outside temperature of 40°. This 59-year-old Aborigine woman threw the stick and began digging up a rabbit hole where the reptile went to hide, triumphantly dragging the lizard out and finishing it off. Northern Territory, Australia
