Hard to tell from the pictures, but I'm guessing either Solenopsis mameti or one of the many Pheidole.
If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.
