Welcome to the forum, you need to list your location by putting it in the location section of your profile if you wish to sell these ants.

You need to go to your profile settings to change your location. If you put it in the member map, it still won’t show up on your profile.

Fyi, it is illegal to ship queens from another countries or even states if you're in US(in exception of p. occidentalis and mot for all states). If you are a beginner ant keeper, it will be really hard to keep them, Messor Arenarius look great by their huge size and physical appearance, they're still not beginner friendly species because of their growth rate and capriciousness. But overally if you are an experienced ant keeper then they will be dope for you.
