Well.. we can't really make an ID like this.

 

Also I don't think that you'll find a 140mm ant walking around Nebraska. ;)

You need to upload your pictures elsewhere and link to them here. Assuming you mean millimeters, It will be important to get a more accurate measurement than that.


If you've enjoyed using my expertise and identifications, please do not create undue ecological risk by releasing your ants. The environment which we keep our pet insects is alien and oftentimes unsanitary, so ensure that wild populations stay safe by giving your ants the best care you can manage for the rest of their lives, as we must do with any other pet.

 

Exotic ants are for those who think that vibrant diversity is something you need to pay money to see. It is illegal to purchase foreign ants anywhere in the United States.
