The strangest natural phenomena I have ever encountered was when I was about fifteen. I was living on a farm with my family near Geurie NSW and I was riding a motorbike in a patch of trees on our farm when I came across a Meat Ant nest. I decided to dig out a rut in the nest with the back tyre. The strange thing was that I uncovered part of scaly reptile living in the nest. I don’t know whether it was a snake or a lizard but it was alive. I wasn’t game to disturb it any more than I already had, especially if it was a snake. I imagine it was a large lizard living off the ants, but I’ve never heard of such a thing or seen anything like it since.
