Not clear enough.

And, Pheidole is the most diverse ant genus in the world, with over 2,000 species. Most of them look the same. So it would be very difficult to identify the exact species. Fortunately, most all Pheidole species have the same care.
"God made every kind of wild beasts and every kind of livestock and every kind of creeping things;" (including ants) "and God saw that it was good." Genesis 1:25
