I was feeding them just moments ago, and I noticed that the entire colony was frozen. I put a piece of toilet paper on the test tube and kept it there for about 20 seconds. I could sorta peek under the toilet paper and could see they were moving again. I removed the toilet paper and they froze up again lol. They were perfectly still too. I guess my colony and/or species plays dead when faced with a threat. I never even knew ants could do that.
Ponera pennsylvanica and Solenopsis molesta do that as well. Ponera workers simply curl up and fall on their sides. :lol:

They're doing really good I moved them into an AC small camponotus hybrid nest with the AntsCanada starter pack. I'm just too busy to do any updates.
