The Honey Ant are a prized delicacy, considered well worth the enormous effort it takes to dig them out of the ground. Honey ant nests can be located by looking for honey ants that are walking around on the ground and following them back to the entrance of their nest. These foraging honey ants are called ‘jaka-liirli’ and can be identified by a little yellow stripe on their bottoms.

When digging up the nest, people look for streaks of bright red soil that signify that they are gettng close to the underground honey ant chambers. Honey ants ants dig tunnels quite deep underground in mulga woodland country. Branching from these passageways are chambers in which the edible honey ants are suspended from the ceilings, full of nectar collected from the Desert Fuchsia. With their swollen abdomens, the ants are unable to move. People pick them out, gather them in ‘parraja’ (coolamons), and eat their abdomens, which taste like honey. FREE STRETCHING ON THIS ARTWORK
