QUEEN ANT IDENTIFICATION NEEDED!!! VERY AGRESSIVE!!!

Hello boys and girls,

Recently I found 2 very interesting queen ants. But I have no idea what species they are.

The first one I found in Thailand. Around 1 month ago, she lay already eggs but, they dont seem to grow. She is around 1cm long.
She was also very agressive and pulled alot of cotton.

Her back seem to a bit small dues she need some food?


The second I found was in Bali(Indonesia) around 3 weeks ago. She is around 1,9cm long and has also
already some eggs which not seem to grow in size.

Does she need a more natural setup?


Can anyone help me here?

It's seriously illegal, as well as it can endanger the native flora and fauna of your home country. That was a terrible decision to make.
Hi I'm Jack, How are you?

It's illegal in the US, not really anywhere else though. At least not that I know of.
Check out my blog: bayareaants.blogspot.com
Keeper of:
Camponotus Modoc(6 workers)
Pheidole Spp (2 queens, about 10 workers)
Possibly parasitic Formica (further ID required)
Novomessor Cockerelli (10+ workers)
