Beautiful large ants, these queens are around 2cm in size and are very chunky! The workers have a lovely black and yellow banded gastor and are not particularly aggressive, although they can bite!
This species have both minor and major workers so make a very interesting colony to raise!
These queens are quite relaxed and easy to care for and make a great colony for anyone to raise!

My Mum bought this ant for me for Christmas, and it was a wonderful gift. The queen ant is very healthy and strong and when I got it it had one worker, 2 piles of brood and a pupae which had spun its cocoon. I recommend this queen as it is extremely healthy and the colony is quiet interesting to look at.
