Hey Jeff, if you end up with P. Calilfornicus, C. Vicinus, or V. Andrei I'll be a buyer my friend.

I do not know why it took me this long to leave feedback.

 

This man is great. Transactions go well, communication is great, and each colony purchased has arrived safely.

Hi Jeff,

 

I'm interested in buying one of the selections, particularly a beginner level colony. Do you have any recommendations?

 

Thanks

Are the listed ants in the thread starter an up to date representation of what is available as of now? (5/10/2020)
