Photo of the week
We're a few days late for this week's photo. But fear not, that just means that next week's photo will drop in only a few days. Joy.
This week's photo is from Flickr user João P. Burin. It's one of our favourite ants, Eciton burchelli.
Images of this ant are one of the things that drew us to the ant keeping hobby. It's huge mandibles are something out of a nightmare.
Check out João P. Burin's page for more great ant photos here.
Today we are having a look at the range of honeycomb nests now being produced by Antworlds.
Here's a little formicarium from Brian Martell for an Australian ant keeper with a tighter budget.
Empire Of Ants has created a formicarium that seems to be effective, whilst also displaying a sense of class.
A new e-shop from Czech manufacturer, Happy Ant, makes purchasing a breeze.
For a considerably long time Antweb has been an incredible resource for those interested in ants. Now they've added a new exciting filter!
Recently we showed off Mark Newton's Formicarium he designed with internal lighting. Once again mark has been busy creating another. His newest creation is officially known as "The Ancient Temple of Formica".
Western Australia is a pretty special place. Hopefully WA ANTZ will help people there have a place to purchase live ants.
Proving again that keeping ants doesn't have to be expensive, we stumbled on this formicarium made from a soda bottle.
LC Ants is a another boutique formicarium manufacturer that has begun building CNC formicaria.
Last winter we were lucky enough to find a very small colony of Orectognathus sp. Here's a short video inside their colony.
