Ant Queen ID Indonesia, Bandung

I cought her this morning 14 November, 8:23. She's around 150mm, so big that I start to doubt myself, is it really an ant queen or other insect? is the test tube big enough?

I'm new to ant keeper and I plan to introduce this ant keeping activity to my son because I think this is a good way for him to learn more about nature.


Thank you.

Hi Ivandiryana! (I will just speak in indonesian language for you to better understand.)

Ini saya juga kebetulan tinggal di bandung, sekarang koloni semut yg saya punya sdh lumayan banyak. Terus ini koloninya ada beberapa yg cocok sekali buat pemula. Siapa tau anda berminat membeli salah satu dari koloninya?
