Update: We are at 7 workers. They had there first protein today, a pre-killed baby Dubia roach.

I wish the brood pile was more visible, as it huge! But they are still relatively photophobic and I didn't want to disturb them too much with my camera lights.
An ants' strength can be rivaled by few animals compared to relative body size.

Ants are life's most successful invaders. Understand and respect that power.

Update: Today while feeding them a drop of honey, the queen decided to come out and have a taste of the sweet goodies. It's actually not the first time I've seen her do this though, as I sometimes see her foraging along with the workers in the AC portal. Just yesterday she brought in two cricket legs that I gave them. She's a brave one that one. :lol:

Even with dual cameras, Iphone 7 plus cameras are terrible.
