Welcome Ladies and Gentlemen to a new journal!
In my never ending quest for more ants I have purchased a small Messor minor colony from Canada Ant Colony at The Canadian Pet Expo. At the moment this colony has five workers a pile of brood and some seeds that I fed them. From what I have experienced so far Messor minor is super fun to keep and accepts most foods you give them.
I have yet to see their creation of ant bread behaviour although I'm sure I'll witness it in the future. I have never kept a Messor species before so please feel free to post tips about this species and correct me if I'm doing something wrong. I hope that this colony thrives under my care and will continue to be such a joy to keep like they have been thus far. Thanks for taking the time reading this and have a great rest of your day (or night)!
This photo doesn't do this species justice they are much prettier in real life.
The queen is much larger than the workers.
These two photos aren't good sorry.
