Hello! I've been a fan of the AntsCanada youtube for a long time and my family decided to get my father an ant colony for my parents anniversary. We are from California and I know I want to get a Camponotus colony going but with all the variations im not sure which will be optimal. Id like a bigger variety thats simple and rewarding to care for so id love some guidence and suggestions! Much love and thank you

Camponotus pennsylvanicus is a great starter species that is quite big. Camponotus novaeboracensis is another big one.
