Hi everyone. In this journal, I'll be recording all the close calls I have with wild Myrmecia, or Bull Ants, for your entertainment.
9th of January, 2022
Brushed past a tree, and a Myrmecia nigrocinta worker falls out and onto my shoulder. My stupid reflexes make me brush it off, and she lands on my sister's bare hand. Luckily nobody was stung, I couldn't believe it.
