Such a beautiful little Australian ant species! These lovely little ants shimmer a greenish shade in the sun.
They do possess a sting which can cause mild pain, so care is required when raising these ants.
They are not able to climb on plastic or glass however, so they are quite easy to contain and manage safely.
No Sales to WA, Tas or USA due to import laws
An excellent Ant
Been after this queen for about a year and finally got one! What an excellent service - incredibly well packaged - the tube being wrapped and firmly secured from movement inside a polybox double wrapped within the package - arriving perfectly and undisturbed. Very interesting Ant to watch - added to a small outworld as she's semi-claustral and she wasted no time wiping out two fruit flies and setting down some brood. She's insanely active and hunts just like a worker and stunning to look at under a clearwhite light. Remember to pop some substrate into her tube as she can't stick to smooth surfaces and the brood need that rough substrate to spin free. A very, very happy customer!
