Intelligent Design?


Gold coloured ants?

How can you make this stuff up? There must be intelligent design involved with this little creature.  Ants that look spray-painted gold can’t be real, but they are. I shot this one on a porch  railing at a Eungai Creek home, about an hour south of Coff’s Harbour in New South Wales, Australia’s east coast. The ant, shining in the sun, looked like it just came out of a bodyshop with a fresh coat of high-gloss gold enamel.  A quick Google search didn’t answer any questions as to how the gold colour helps this ant. Nor did I find anything on the ant. If you have any answers, leave a comment!

    I saw some of these yesterday on my gate… Googled them and your post is the closest I could find. I live in Byron Bay

      Hi Evie,
      Thanks for the post. I too look forward to learning more about these fascinating little guys. Let us know if you find out anything more on the gold-coloured little wonders. I’ll inquire at the Sydney Zoo and see what I come up with.
