AGATHA Our Camponotus aeneopilosus Queen.
We were lucky enough to catch one single Camponotus aeneopilosus queen last season.
These are large active carpenter ants that are quite common in Australia but can be hard to find.
With just one queen our hopes of raising her successfully were low. But last week AGATHA welcomed her first nanitics.
We'll be moving her into a starter formicarium shortly to aid in feeding.
We'll keep you guys updated of her progress.
This quarter we're happy to bring you a brief look at an Oecophylla smaragdina formicarium from Viktor Underwood.
