The world’s tiniest heist! Couple who travel Australia prospecting for gemstones capture the moment a thieving ANT tries to make a getaway with their GOLD. Walter Krikowa and his wife were on a recent gold hunting trip travelling through Western Australia, the Northern Territory and Queensland. The Canberra couple filmed an ant trying to steal one of their nuggets. Mr Krikowa said the nugget weighed just under a gram and would have been several times the weight of the ant. The couple go prospecting for three months during winter every year.
