Queen Ant Identification 14/03/17 Singapore

Hi guys, need some help on ID three queens which I caught few days back.

First queen is quite small, around 3mm. I almost miss it as its so small, I thought it's a worker ant.

Second one is around 6-7mm, long gaster. Seem like campontous to me but with large teeth. :o

Third one is aggressive, will always be in this position whenever I check on her.

I agree with melanocephalum No idea about the others but I can say that the third one is almost definitely semi-claustral
