I've had this colony as long as the others, but I thought I'd start a journal about them. 

 

Here is an introduction to them:

 

 

 

and here is how much they have grown.

Starting this July I'm posting videos of my ants every week on youTube.

I like to make relaxing videos that capture the joy of watching ants.

If that sounds like your kind of thing... follow me >here<

That's remarkable growth in two months.  What protein are you feeding these gals, and how often?

I just realized I put this in the wrong forum... is there a way to move this thread to "journals"?

A whole bunch of workers eclosed today. Look at what I'm calling the "callow club"

I don't know how the queen does it. She is laying every single day. I often catch her in the act.

The callows still seem to get hazed and walked on.
