mine here in Philippines. I always see this long trail of ants with small workers and Big headed Majors. And I tell to my self that I want that one. Thats my dream colony. I do not know the species that time. And recently I caught one. Yes! Dream came True! So I post a picture of it and ask for ID. And I finally knew what it is. Its Carebara Diversa! What a cool Name

Congrats! My dream colony is a lasius interjectus colony. I just caught three queens so hopefully at least one of them will have a successful colony! :D
