    Ooh I got bitten by one of those at the end of last summer. The damn thing was hanging onto the end of my toe and wouldnt let go!!:arghh: It hurt so much I was crying and it stung for days.......

    We were at Port Willunga watching the sunset, Rich said to me to move and not look down, but I did and my thong came off as I tried to get out of the way, then loads of the little buggers came out of a hole and took off with my thong down the hill, Rich had to chase them while I hopped roound trying to get the biggest ant in the world off my big toe!!!!:biglaugh::biglaugh: It was pure comedy in retrospect, but at the time truly terrifyling and painful!
