Tetraponera rufonigra.


Common name: 'The Bicoloured Arboreal Ant.'
    This is an attractive slim ant that makes its nests in wood or hollow branches. It has good eyesight and is very aggressive.
    It adapts to captivity well - although because of its foraging habits the habitat chamber should be furnished with plenty of small branches.
    This species is difficult to obtain. Hence - although it is a good sized attractive ant and suitable for captivity, it is rarely offered for sale by other vendors.
    Colonies usualy only have a single queen however one of the colonies we are offering for sale has six  queens.
    Painful sting: Purchase of this species is restricted to customers over the age of 18.
