Queen ant or super major??

I just picked up the hobby and have caught two ants thinking they were queens, sadly the first died after about a week of keeping her in a test tube set up, indicating she was not a queen. A couple of days ago I found another ant much bigger than the first, and thought this must be a queen based on the size. Now I’m skeptical she may just be a super major, and don’t want to kill another innocent worker :( pls help

p.s. the forum won't let me attach a picture, I just keep getting the prompt "file too large" so any tips on fixing that or maybe just general indicators of a queen over a super major would be greatly appreciated! :D

I suggest searching for an 'image to link' converters, typically I use https://imgbb.com/ but you could use google drive, flickr, imgur etc.
