She is highly active. Massive 18-22mm long.

Pictures are the best I can get with her moving so much.

Also, claustal or not?

Thanks,

Camponotus, fully clausteral
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

Camponotus pennsylvanicus, has minor, soldier, major, and super major castes. Can spray formic acid and has a powerful bite.
"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
