Spiny ants are some of our favourites here! They are such lovely little ladies and this species is no exception. They are generally quite shy and make a very nice placid colony to raise. This species are black in colour.

Got the queen and set her up in her tube. Still hasn't laid a single egg
Queen came intact in the post and also with a worker + larvae. Will buy again. Thank you very much <3
