So, you may know that I discontinued my main journal because all my ants died and I've been burnt out. But now, I caught a lot more ants (a 30-40 worker Crematogaster colony, a Polyrhachis cf beccarii queen with brood, and a group of 5 Dolichoderus thoracicus queens) and I feel like recontinueing it again but then I ran into a small issue, since I have a trap-jaw ant colony shortly after I discontinued my main journal, I posted her updates on my old trap-jaw ant journal. So my question is: Should I update the trap-jaws on the main journal together with the other ants or have their own separate journal?

Your choice. I had something like this a while back, and I linked the other journal to my main journal (so people could see previous updates( and said I would continue to update to colony on my main journal.

It's nice to be able to read everything in one place.  Thanks for all your info and insight.

My father always said I had ants in my pants.
