A "carpenter ant" I don't have sufficient lighting so they are poor pictures.

Cool! Hope it turns into a strong colony and you have no more major setbacks.

Crematogaster sp's She was laying on her back when I found her, but then I poked her and she ended up on my finger and I set her back down to crawl around (From top to bottom it would be backwards in the time line). I tried to find the nest but no luck.

Camponotus noveboracensis Just some more shots of the small colony I have.

I want an ant colony SO bad. That looks very awesome. How did you get it? Currently my best chance of getting one is waiting for one to move into one of my CPs, then repotting it and taking the colony. Have you ever had one with multiple queens?
