I've had this colony in a chunk of a dead branch for a while in this container (the wood shavings). I let them dig out some more before dumping them out so I can get the whole colony out. I wasn't sure what the typical colony size is for these ants but it does seem like a decent sized colony. It looks to be at least a year old colony for sure. They have lots of larva and pupa and about 30-40 workers or so (too lazy to count).

I'll get better pics once they move into the tube.

Here is the pic of the whole colony! It doesn't show off how much brood they actually have though. They have tons of brood.

Made a short video a day after feeding. Their gasters look pretty neat and transparent.

They love mealworms and sugar water. They can't seem to get enough of either. They have been growing quite steadily and no new eggs lately.

These are littering my woods. They are literally everywhere. I have a colony with over 300 workers. Day before yesterday they had 10 workers. I found some satellite nests and fused the colonies to mine. :)
