                                                                     Leptomyrmx's Ant Shop

                                                                                                         Opening soon!

Hi everyone! I'm opening an ant shop! I'll be selling various species, Ytong nests, and more. Just PM me if you're interested in anything. Trading is welcome!


Before buying:

-I can only ship inside of NSW.

-Package must be signed for to avoid ants overheating.

-If you want to pick up the ants just include that in the message and we can arrange a meeting spot near the Newtown area. Make sure someone over 18 is present.

-If you're picking up ants also make sure you are double vaccinated if you are over the age of 12.

-I only accept cash and PayPal.

-Postage not available for trading.


The shop isn't currently open, I need to set up a PayPal account first, but this is like a sneak peek of the things we'll have on sale. Pickup should be available around mid-December.


Ants available:

-Rhytidoponera cf. aspera with eggs $60


Nests Available:

PM me with a custom nest design, size, etc. and I'll see what I can do. Nests can be made of Ytong or my absorbent mortar-like material (ideal for all-in-ones).

3D printed nests may be available someday.


Again, the shop is not yet open. If I have broken any rules related to the market place or anything like that please let me know. :]
