You know, many of the neatest animals in the Scrub are small. Look down here, on the ground. Here's a harvester ant nest. Harvesters collect seeds and bring them to their nest. Harvesters are native ants, unlike the pesky fire ant, which is introduced from South America. There are many other species of ants native to the Scrub. Know why they are important?
