Australians are so lucky when it comes to ants.... (maybe not when they're stung by Myrmecia, though.  :lol: )


Well grass is always greener on the other side as they say. I wish we had more Carebara ants :)

And the ones we have are not that easy to find...






Pheidole Antipodum colony started covering the holes of the Byformica water feeder with sand... so scratch that.... will switch to a plugged up small test tube for water instead...

They already made a small graveyard on the foil :lol:

Also surprised how active they are, constant trail of ants on patrol.

They are supposed to be subterranean but they don't really act like it so far
