There is a important time for everything, important place for everyone, an important person for everybody, and an important ant for each and every ant keeper and myrmecologist alike

we actually are being helped by AntsExodus right now, with him photographing ants with his nice camera. If anyone else could do the same, it would be a huge help.

Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. -Proverbs 6: 6-8

I would love to help with this project but... I don't have a good camera lens and I don't really know to much about ant's, (at least from a scientific standpoint) but once I learn more I'll be sure to contribute! (I'm also getting a better macro lens soon) So I'm assuming that this will be a wiki that everyone can contribute to, and I think it would also be cool for this to be like an ant keeper guide, although I'm not sure if that's your plan in the first place, but I think this will be really interesting and I can't wait until it's open to the public!

Well, we are actually choosing who edits. Photos are given to us, and we incorporate them into the wiki. Of course all credit would be given accordingly.

If you ever start a YouTube channel I expect weekly controversial topics and your own catchphrase. How does AD Family sound?

Ok, sounds good. I think Ants_Dakota and AntsDakota said I would be in charge of the YouTube Channel, so I will try to do that ;) Or how about the AntsD family.

Oh, I guess I started to work on the YouTube channel, actually. Thought maybe you had too much going on creating our entire video game by yourself.

What I want is to support responsible keeping of native species. And I will try to make it entertaining, too. But much more honest than our friend.

Oh that’s totally fine. Once I’m done with the game, or pretty down the road with it, I can can do the channel.

We don’t plan on taking any business away from Formiculture, if that’s what you’re asking. Just a nice little community where people can ask us questions and such.

In fact, they will be relatively cheap in price compared to THA.
