ok here is my first weekly update in the present
so my queen Bruenora (added an "a" so it sounds more like a female name)just got moved to a new test tube her old one is still in it I added two pictures the second one is for you to see how big the tube is (you can see the queens gastor).

my crematogaster (sorry for the name of the journal being misspelled :oops: ) queen got moved into the test tube portal and has eggs! I do not know if she laid them before hibernation or in hibernation because Bruenora laid eggs in hibernation. I got a heating pad for christmas and want to use it. I know they are supposed to be in hibernation but should I use it?
Also if any one wants to help give name suggestions for the crematogaster queen I am open for you to do so.

here are some pics

I didn't even notice the typo, so don't worry.
