While on vacation on Fitzroy Island (in Cairns, Australia), I was on a 
tour of the land.  The tour guide pointed out small ants on the side 
of a tree.  These ants had a light green abdomen.  It was explained 
that the Aborigines had used these ants for firmer breasts and tighter 
thighs.  It was said that the women would lick about 100 a day 
because the abdomen contained estrogen. They said it was alright to 
lick one and when I did it tasted like sour pink lemonade.  Any 
information on the ant or a scientific name would be greatly
