Re: Acromyrmex versicolor (My new colony)

The fungus in the hybrid nest is taking over https://www.instagram.com/p/BITucXuAVJK/?taken-by=my.ants Also the queen seems to like the hybrid nest, but not the light. I do try to keep my snooping down to a minimum https://www.instagram.com/p/BITubDWARbY/?taken-by=my.ants And here's what the out wor...

Re: Acromyrmex versicolor (My new colony)

The colony has taken to their new hybrid nest better then expected.

Re: Acromyrmex versicolor (My new colony)

I wanted ants that came with a twist. Honeypots were top of the list, but leaf cutters came in a close second. So when the honeypots weren't available in through the GAN project, I selected a small A. Versicolor colony and now 6 weeks later I've come to realize this was the better choice. Now the se...
