What he ate to survive: Hunter Survives By Eating Ants, A hunter who got lost in a vast Australian desert managed to survive for six days without water by eating ants, police said.

Reginald Foggerdy, 62, had embarked on a hunting trip last week with his brother in the Great Victoria Desert in Western Australia.

He went missing Wednesday after setting off to hunt animals in the dry, sandy wilderness, wearing only a t-shirt, shorts and flip-flops, according to police.

After a “massive” land and air search, police officers aided by Aboriginal trackers found Foggerdy “extremely dehydrated, a bit delusional” on Tuesday, said Police Superintendent Andy Greatwood.

“His last couple of days of survival were achieved by lying down under a tree and eating black ants,” Greatwood told local radio. “That’s the level of survival that Mr. Foggerdy has gone to.”
