Orange slices.

Re: Help us identify please!

Hello! My son, who is about to turn 9 just recently got into keeping ants. He found this one. We thing it's a carpenter ant. But we're not totally sure. We are in Kentucky. Thanks!! https://drive.google.com/file/d/1iXyuhNk5-oR7ITDMxrKowF0xyAkJxxyJ/view?usp=drivesdk https://drive.google.com/file/d/1...
