I stand corrected. David writes from his semester in Ghana:
"Friday last brought us into the jungle, eye, the jungle as only the shadows and those who know and a steady stream of Ghanian and Obruni tourists have seen it. Ants, I discovered, are only really disturbing when they MAKE NOISE. A whole clony in a steady line making a steady click-clacking."
So Hollywood didn't just completely fabricate the clicking noise, it seems. I stand by my assertion that it is overused. But it's nice to know that the clicking bug phenomenon is more than just a continually perpetuated myth. Or maybe it's not nice to know that.
