Yes, found in Dominican Republic and got the permits They are dark form Solenopsis Geminata, so they are darker however the majors are larger. I will be extremely careful to not let them escape, as the minor workers are really small as well as the major's ability to chew through a lot of materials.
Yeah, that wouldn't be "native". You found "dark form" geminata, which are native to the Southern US and some other areas.
I think it's super cool that you own them, ESPECIALLY the "dark form", as these, to me, are much cooler than the red form and are native to me down here in Florida.
