Here's a picture of S. geminata eating a piece of chicken, the ant circled in green is a major (the picture is bad, I know, it's quite hard to get a picture of the majors). Unedited picture available in the gallery.

And here's just some pictures of Anochetus and Cardiocondyla.

And also I'm planning on giving an outworld to Trichomyrmex and Paratopula. I might give Paratopula a more verticle outworld since they're arboreal.

 

Edit: If you're wondering why it seems like there's very few workers in Cardiocondyla, it's because they are near the entrance of the test tube which is offscreen.

Paratopula started eating their brood.

 

I gave Trichomyrmex an outworld as it's getting harder to feed them, they HATED it and escaped by squeezing between the lid and moved their brood to another test tube that I forgot to clean. Luckily though the queen can't squeeze through (free roaming ant colony?).

Two days ago I caught two Camponotus albosparsus colonies! Both have shed their wings and laid one egg, one of the eggs is pink.

So, the fire ants' test tube and outworld flooded... I quickly moved them to new test tube but since the outworld isn't big enough to fit a second test tube (25mm x 150mm) , I had to use a smaller one (15mm x 126mm).

 

Three days ago I caught a Carebara affinis alate.

My dad found an O. smaragdina queen! Really hope this one makes it. She currently has a pile of eggs and they should be hatching soon.

 

So I've been away for two days and S. geminata has some mass die offs... Hope they recover soon.

 

Both C. albosparsus queens have larvae.

Oecophylla has larvae but hasn't started building her silk tent yet.

 

Gnamptogenys (Stictoponera) has a lot of larvae.
