Several models for the dynamic growth of percolation clusters, or 'diffusion percolation' (DP), are introduced and analysed. In these models a random walker (an 'ant') walks on percolation clusters (which are occupied with initial site concentration, pi). The 'ant' is allowed to step off such clusters and add new sites to them if certain conditions are met. Some of these models are shown to have a one-to-one correspondence with models of bootstrap percolation (BP), in which sites which do not have a required number of neighbours are successively culled. Two new percolation thresholds have been calculated for two diffusion percolation models on the square lattice.
