These little ladies are slightly bulkier than the smaller Iridomyrmex species. They are lovely little ants for young or inexperienced ant keepers. They are nice and easy to keep and they are too small to bite or sting.
They can form strong colonies quite quickly so are very rewarding and are also very active so make for an interesting colony.
