I forgot about my queen and for a year...

I left her in my basement in a giant test tube filled with water. When I remembered her now I went to check on her. She had 30 workers and part was filled with dead workers that I’m assuming they ate. I can’t believe I forgot.

I gave it away to a friend. I didn’t count it as me who raised it and saw it grow and my friend was new to ant keeping so I just gave it away.
