Hi,

 

I am new to ant keeping and found this ant. Firstly, can you tell me if it even is a queen, (I just captured a large ant with a large abdomen), and if it is, what species, as well as what kind of conditions/food ect they like. Thanks a lot.

 

Ant is ~ 5.5mm long, was found in Brisbane - Queensland, is mostly black, with her abdomen being golden brown.

 

If you guys need any more info on it just tell me. Thanks again!
