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.

The Honey Ants Dream. 14 Repletes, the “honey pots”, in the hand of an Aborigine woman. The repletes' chambers are often situated more than a meter deep and the only way of finding them is to locate the Melophotus bogati ants' discreet entrances at the foot of the mulga trees and then dig, following the tunnel which goes down vertically to more than one meter below ground.

The Honey Ants Dream. Audrey Martin, a 59-year-old Aborigine woman digging with a burrowing stick, these days made of metal. Once made of acacia aneura wood, this stick was also used as much to dig up honey ants and tubers as to throw at prey such as lizards and other small animals.

The Honey Ants Dream. The women and the children participate in this harvest on the plains full of mulga trees. The Aborigines locate the honey ants at the foot of the tree by the size and the yellow grooves of the worker ants but also through the discoloration of the ground due to the formic acid with which the ants impregnate their nests and surroundings. The ground thus saturated turns a more orange color. Once the women have found the nest's entrance they dig vertically, following the main tunnel. The honey ants are very placid even if they do have powerful mandibles. Northern Territory, AustraliaThe Honey Ants Dream.
