made a formicarium for my ant. I will shift them in the nest later when the water in their test tube runs out.

Finally it happened!!!!!!!!!! aaaayeeeeeh!
lessgoo the worker hatched yooo. I fed the ant too!!
Ok so I recorded three videos of them- me giving the food, them eating food, nanitics montage.

the first video dudee it's so scary like the things that happen in that video was so scary for me as well as the ants.

you can see how the ants were panicking so much and because of that I was getting scared. I was shaking so much that even an earthquake would be scared of me. they rejected the food and I was thinking to post something here to ask you guys for help.
well the second video is a long boi and it has both the feeding clips of ants. you can see only the queen ate the honey and when the nanitics came to drink it the queen sent them back. she might have been scared to loose the workers so she came forward alone to eat the food. Some parts might be shaky and not record the queen because I was trying to see them drink and forgot that I was recording :lol: I only gave them two small drop of honey seeing how protective and scared they were.

the third video is me trying to record the two nanitics. as you saw in first video that the second nanitic was actually being helped to come out of cocoon. I tried my best to record them with my poor old phone.

all this is the thing I recorded. after that I put them back in their box in dark.

All the nanitics hatched!! :D I gave them three drops of honey water and they finished it so I gave them the termite. they did not seem very interested in the termite at first but they later started to eat it. but only a little. I recorded a video but the file is too big and taking long to upload so I will edit this post and add the video after breaking it into small videos.

New test tubes arrived yay. Now day after tomorrow I will shift them in the test tube. Yesterday i gave them some food for thwm to have more energy. I gave them pomegranate juice and they loved it so much even the queen wanted to eat it. But i gave them juice in a piece of foil paper and it was on that little elevation so the queen couldn't climb up :? I think there are three cocoons also and something wlese that the ants were carrying. I thought it was larvae but it wasnt that. Maybe that chewd up termite.

Nothing much is happening. They are not moving to new test tube. If something happens i will post it here. Other things like ants fighting or not moving were just concerns and i have not written them here

Awesome!
Colonies: A Camponotus Novaeboracensis queen with eggs and larvae, and new born workers! (Update) someone maybe my brother opened the container they were in, they all escaped and I can’t find another Queen of the same species :(

Btw, I know this is a camponotus colony, but if you ever end up with a small sized species, to prevent a speedy growth, you can give them less protein, or put them in a slightly colder area.
