Update: (May 6, 2018)

They have moved all the pupae and almost all the rest of the brood into the other test tube. In the pictures, you can see newly eclosed workers which are tan in color.

Update: (June 8, 2018)

It's been awhile since I updated this journal due to my school finals. But anyways, this colony has around 75 workers now and had around 20 pupae. I'm super excited about these new majors that have hatched. They look so cool!

Just wait for the Super Majors to come! :D
An ants' strength can be rivaled by few animals compared to relative body size.
