Honeypot Colony Video Series
Youtube user Paul Juhl has been filming his Myrmecocystus mimicus, the fabled honeypot ant, for the last few months now.
His latest video shows his excitement at the addition of a new replete that is somewhat larger than the rest of the ants so far.
Do yourself a favour and check out his video above along with his other honeypot videos at his youtube channel.
We've planned a trip to Central Australia and we're hoping to find ourselves the Australian version of the honeypot ant, Melophorus bagoti in the coming weeks. Fingers crossed.
In part 2 we are looking at the various food options within each food group.
In the first part of this two part series we take a look at ant food.
In Part 3 we take a look at identifying the species.
In Part 2 we take a look at identifying a queen.
