Hello!
Last night there was a very serious storm and today i went ant hunting. i was walking in a park where i spotted an ant that was drunk like and stopped by every hole in the sidewalk, this made me think a queen. i captured her and put her in a test tube set up

She is 5mm aproximately. when i found her she had a big gaster and thorax and acted as a queen. please i would like to know if shes a queen or a worker and which species.
Thank you

Yup, That's a queen. In order to ID her properly, I would appreciate clearer photos, though.
