Re: Queen ant?

These pictures are almost identical? And if you use the button to put image brackets around those links, we won't have to copy-paste each one into our search bar.

Pogonomyrmex would be "harvester ants".

I can say, however, that she looks like a fully-claustral species, so she will likely be ok if she lays eggs and you wait for her first wo...
