Thieving Ant Seizes a Golden Opportunity

Walter Krikowa and his wife Liz travel across Australia prospecting for gold and gemstones and film their adventures for their YouTube channels.

"On this particular day, I returned to camp with a few nuggets and proceeded to show them to my wife. I accidentally dropped one of the small nuggets, and on bending down to retrieve it was astonished to notice a small ant had grabbed the nugget and tried to drag it away," he said.

Rather than apprehending the little thief, Liz quickly grabbed the camera to record the unusual incident.
