Idk. I don’t have something I could measure them with right now. Could I try a comparison, like putting them next to something to compare with?

A coin is pretty good for taking measurements without struggling to get her to sit still just try and mark where abouts her head and gaster end.
Ants are life's most successful invaders. Understand and respect that power.

I got the photo but photo bucket is being annoying. I’m upstate right now with almost no connection. Give me a few mins and I’ll try to get the photo

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