Hey all! 
The Myrmecia Nigrocincta queen and her worker I was given by JCRHJM arrived on thursday.

They are doing great and both are alive and well. The pile of brood looks great and they have already taken some protein. 

This is the setup for them right now. I found out I cracked a bone in my foot the day before I got them and was not able to get some nice rocks to add. Will add some more for them when I get a cast on.

Some Videos I took of them. Hope you enjoy and I look forward to updating you all on them in the future.

Update: Mealworm went hard too fast so I gave a baby cricket and they loved it. Put it right onto of their brood to feed on it.

Best picture I could get. I got a used Canon Power Shot SX 40HS and once the SD card comes in the mail I'll start taking pictures on that.
