Pheidole sp.

Could be Ph. megacephala, but we're a little limited on well-lit detailed photos.
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.
