Founding type: Claustral
Size: Medium. Queen ~1cm, workers ~5mm
Diet: Do not require feeding until workers arrive. Feed a mix of small protein and sugars.
Set-up: Test tube up until 15-30 workers. Then move to small nest and outworld.Funnel ants are laid back and generally easy to care for. They are not aggressive, do not sting and are quite slow moving. Their colonies also expand rapidly, making them perfect for young or inexperienced ant keepers.
In the wild they make large funnel shaped mounds around the entrance to their nest, hence their common name.
