Messor species is my favorite ant species because of very low maintenance. They simply need plain water which I change once a week and a spoon of seed will last them few months.


From what I can tell, Messor species do not have social stomach and every one is responsible for their own feeding, even the queen.


Updates on this colony is not very frequent because there isn't really anything to report. This is really a lowkey colony.
