One of the largest and most aggressive Australian ant species, these beautiful creatures can be well over 3cm in size!
Myrmecia species are some of the largest and most interesting ants to keep. They require some experience as they possess strong pinching mandibles and a painful sting, much like that of a wasp.
They can be very aggressive and have very good eye sight, able to track you from across the room. Colonies can be slow to develop so patience is required, with the queens sometimes laying eggs in a 6-12 month cycle. However, once established, colony numbers can exceed 1000 so you can get a very large and very rewarding colony with these ants.Unavailable to ship to WA, Tas and USA
Pleased i took the risk.
She arrived today, alive and well. Fedex were three days later than they said but overall i'm glad i went to Queen of Ants and will definitely deal with them again. Thanks
Die erste Ameise erreichte uns leider nicht lebendig. Ohne Schwierigkeiten wurde eine neue Ameise versendet, die dann auch pünktlich und unversehrt bei uns angekommen ist.
Wir haben noch Zollrechnungen von FedEx bekommen( pro Versand EUR 25), was mir nicht bewusst war. Ansonsten ist mein Sohn glücklich mit seiner neuen Ameise.
