Great Video to share: http://www.wildcamaustralia.com/green_tree_ants_friend_or_foe.html
Real biters!!!! Ouch…Must share a time when first arriving in the dry tropics… these ants are vicious and get very angry if their nests are disturbed! I accidentally backed into one…and was covered with these nasty biting ants…. although I have been told if you pinch their heads off they are a delight to eat… They can be found in Northern Territory and far north Queensland. Their nests are often above the ground.
It is said . Aboriginal people ate the white larvae found inside the leafy nests. It has a lemon taste. The ants and larvae were also pounded and mixed with water to produce a lime flavoured drink to relieve colds, headaches and sore throats.
