Hitch3’s Rhytidoponera Metallica Journal

Hi all,

You may have seen me from my other journal “Hitch3’s Camponotus Consobrinus Journal”.Today I bought a (really small) colony of Rhytidoponera Metallica. They currently have 1 Queen, 1 Worker, 3 Larave and 5 eggs.

They came in a plain “Tubs And Tubes” setup, but I have since moved them into a more realistic area.

I will be updating this journal every week with at least one photo, just like my other journal.

Now, photo time! :D

New Setup

New Outworld

Photos Of The Queen And Worker

Well, that’s about it for now. I will try to update every Sunday Afternoon (Australian Time.)

Until then,

Cheers! :D
