Common name: 'The Spider Ant.'
These are large ants about 12 mm in size. They form small colonies of between 30-60 individuals.
They have a fascinating defence mechanism and when disturbed will eject a long thread of sticky web like substance.
They are easy to keep in captivity and will take most foods.
We have one large colony available. Colonies of this size are not often found and hence not often offered for sale.
