Honey ants are a much prized delicacy, considered to be well worth the enormous effort it takes to dig them out of the ground. The ants dig tunnels qiute deep under the ground in ‚Jirrijirrinpa‘ (mulga woodland) country.
Branching from these passage ways are chambers (‚mingki‘), from the ceiling of which the honey ants are suspended, full of wood. With their swollen abdomens, the ants are unable to move. The country associated with this Jukurrpa is Wanakurdpanda, east of Yuendumu. This Jukurrpa also travels through Yuendumu, and belongs to Japangardi/Japanganka men and Napangardi/Napangangka women.

Honey ants can beidentified by a little yellow stripe on their backs.
