Her first nanitic!
We're pleased to announce the arrival of NANCY's very first nanitic! She was finally freed from her cocoon last night and along with NANCY, is doing well.
It looks like that NANCY has also laid 3 new eggs now hatched into larvae that is visible in the middle of the photo.
NANCY is still quite alarmed by any lights so having her in an Inception Chamber from Tarheel Ants has been a raging success.
In an unfortunate case of bad timing, a live TV interview in Australia has been interrupted by a mating swarm of ants during their nuptial flight.
