Ok, so i have three of the same queens and they all have workers. At first i thought they were all Camponotus Fallax ants, but upon closer inspection, im not so sure. pictures of the species indicate that the workers are about half the size of the queen, whereas my workers are barely longer than half of the queen's ghaster. I don't think its a camponotus species at all now. but i have no idea what species it is. the ants are black, besides the queen who seemed to have grown honey-colored striped on her ghaster. Any ideas? I would include a picture of the ants, but i have no idea how on this website...

An ants' strength can be rivaled by few animals compared to relative body size.

Keep in mind that a Queens first nanantics are smaller than what the workers will be when the colony is more developed and has access to more food.
Tetramorium immigrans * Lasius Neoniger * Lasius Claviger * Messor Aciculatus * Myrmica Rubra * Camponotus Novaeboracensis * Camponotus Turkastanus * Pheidole Pallidula
