I am not sure. I have never met anyone on here from Mumbai. However I encourage you to keep looking. Please also post any photos or write description of the beautiful little critters you see out there in India!!

I didn't think that there would be anyone in my area who liked ants, but, when I started looking, I found that there were quite a few. I'm not sure about India, though, as there aren't any GAN farmers listed.
